  1. Heat a large pot to medium heat and add the olive oil.
  2. Add the onion, peppers and celery and cook them until softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and smoked ham and cook another minute, stirring, until fragrant.
  4. Add the Historic Lynchburg Cajun Spice & Seasoning, blackeyed peas and chicken broth. Bring to a quick boil, then reduce the heat.
  5. Simmer for 1 hour, or until the beans are nicely softened, but not mushy.
  6. Serve over rice and garnish with chopped parsley.


Serves 6 or 12 as a side dish.
Many factors may affect the cooking time of the black-eyed peas, including the age of the beans, where they were grown, even the water you are using. They will usually soften in about an hour, but time could run from 30-120 minutes, so be sure to test as you go along.
