Slow Cooker Creole Style Purple Hull Peas

Dennise H. Recipe

By Dennise H. Dixie_Amazon

I have fond memories of shelling purple hull peas with my Aunt April and my cousins. Now I buy them at the farmers market or frozen, but I still think about those warm days on my aunt's back porch.

Field peas or black-eyed peas can be used instead of purple hulls.
