Original recipe yields 15 servings

Directions

  1. Place the smoked turkey leg, sausage, onion, garlic salt, black pepper, and seasoned salt into a large soup pot; pour in water to cover. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer until the meat is tender, about 1 hour.
  2. Stir the black-eyed peas into the soup, adding more water as needed to cover peas by 1 inch. Bring to a boil. Again reduce heat and simmer until the peas are tender and have begun to break apart, about 1 more hour.
  3. Remove turkey bones and tendons from the turkey meat and discard the bones. Add sugar and simmer until the soup is slightly creamy and thickened, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes

I left out the hot beef link sausage and used dried peas. This was awesome. The smoked turkey leg gave a far superior flavor than my usual smoked ham hock. Will make this my standard recipe for black-eyed peas. Thanks for sharing.

Very tasty! I made these black eyed peas for Thanksgiving dinner and it was a huge hit! I used dried peas as well. I used only one diced sausage link and the smoked turkey leg. Honestly, the turkey leg by itself is probably good enough for seasoning these peas. Thanks so much for this recipe!

Made this for New Years 2010! Absolutely the best!!! I truly don't think you could top this. I couldn't find a smoked turkey leg so I used a smoked turkey sausage and I added all the last hour the peas were cooking. I also used dried black eyed peas.
