Although this recipe calls for pink-eyed peas, you can use black-eyed peas or other local varieties.

How to Make It

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add peas, water, and bacon; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, partially covered, 30 minutes or until tender. Discard bacon. Stir in salt and pepper.

This makes a tasty pot of peas with a couple of changes. It needs way more salt and pepper and needs to cook for twice as long.
