Crock Pot Black Eyed Pea Soup

Eating black eyed peas on New Year’s Day is a southern tradition. It is thought to bring prosperity in the new year. One legend associating black eyed peas with good luck goes back to Civil War times. Sherman’s army had pillaged the food supplies of southerners on his March to the Sea. However the army left the peas along with pork believing they were animal food. Southerners considered themselves lucky to be left with food to help them make it through the winter. This recipe for Crock Pot Black Eyed Pea Soup is a great way to add the peas to your menu for New Year’s Day. Serve along with cornbread (which symbolizes gold) for a hearty meal!

    We like lots of kinds of beans at our house, but for some reason I never cook black-eyed peas. That needs to change, particularly since this is a crock pot recipe. Thank you! Pinned!
    Blessings, Leigh
