Ingredients

16 oz
dried black-eyed peas, rinsed and sorted
2 lb
turkey wings
1/3 c
finely chopped ham
1/4 tsp
dried crushed red pepper
2
garlic cloves minced
1
jalepeno pepper
1
large sweet onion diced
1
bay leaf
2 Tbsp
canola oil
16 oz
fresh collard greens, trimmed finely and chopped
1 Tbsp
hot sauce
1 Tbsp
apple cider vinegar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
1. Bring peas, turkey wings, and 6 cups water to a boil in a large boiler (I prefer a large cast iron skillet). Cover, reduce heat to medium, and simmer 45 minutes or until peas are tender, skimming any foam from surface. Drain peas, reserving 1 1/4 cups liquid. Remove turkey meat from bones. Chop meat.
2
Saute ham and next 7 ingredients in hot oil in a larger boiler over medium-high heat 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add peas, reserved 1 1/4 cups liquid, turkey meat, collards, hot sauce, and 6 cups water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes. Stir in vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Discard bay leaf. Serve over rice (I prefer regular white rice) and enjoy!
