Open the black-eyed peas and rinse. Look for any rocks or bad beans and remove them.
Add all of the ingredients, except the salt, into the slow cooker.
Cook on LOW for 5-6 hours or HIGH for 3 hours.
Remove the ham bone and pull apart any meat from the bone. If you don't want to have any meat in the black-eyed peas, then just set aside.
If including the meat, cube it, and return it to the Crockpot.
Taste and add salt, as desired.
If you'd like your black-eyed peas to have a creamier texture, remove 1 cup of them from the slow cooker. Mash them and add back to the crock.Please note: All nutritional values are estimates. Exact values depend on the specific products used.
