“Southern comfort food to warm the heart! Goes GREAT with hot water cornbread!! Use beef smoked sausage if you prefer.” - by That Girl Tam
Original recipe yields 15 servings
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
