A great way to use leftover ham!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Cornbread sopped up with pea liquor is a delicacy in the South on New Year's Day and boy these black-eyed peas are so good. They're spicy and perfectly salted with a delicious array of veggies and cooked ham. All cooked in one pot, the flavors meld together. Serve with buttered cornbread and you have a Crock Pot of warm, comforting black-eyed peas.
