– Start with dry black-eyed peas. There’s no need to soak, but if you do, the cook time is reduced only slightly.


– Put the peas straight into the pot with the bell peppers, garlic, onion, liquid smoke, mustard, bay leaf and broth/water.


– Cook the (unsoaked) peas in the crock pot on the stovetop in a large pot on medium heat.


– Serve the peas with or without their broth, garnish with parsley or green onions.
