I put two cups of dried black eyed peas in my extra large slow cooker. I had a ham bone in the freezer from a spiral sliced ham. It was full of meat. I defrosted it and put it on top of the dried beans. I also poured in the packet of glaze that came with it originally. (I hadn't used it because the sliced ham was used for cold sandwiches.) I then sauteed a medium onion, 5 cloves of garlic and a large jalapeno in bacon fat along with a teaspoon of each cumin and black mustard seeds. I just wilted the onion and waited for the mustard seeds to start popping. I poured the entire thing into the slow cooker on top of the ham. I then added 4 cups of water and set the slow cooker to high. I chose 7 hours, but will check on it and add or subtract time as I notice how the ham/beans are faring.
It was actually done in 5 hours and it was AWESOME!!!! My husband said "DO IT AGAIN," and most of the time he says NOTHING.
