The best black eyed peas

Didn't take photos of the dish but I have some cute toddler pics. 

Jotting down a recipe so I can make this delicious dish again!

Cook 1/2 pound bacon, crumble, set aside
Sauté 1 onion and 3-4 garlic cloves, diced, in 1tbsp bacon fat
Deglaze with apple cider vinegar
Add 10 oz of fresh black eyed peas and some water. 
I added some herbes de Provence (adapted recipe called for thyme)
1 tbsp sugar in there too
Cook the water off, add the bacon, crumbled. 
Salt to taste. The salt is essential. 
And throw in some diced lil smokies if you want even more meaty flavor.

This stuff is irresistible. And I didn't even think I liked black eyed peas. 

Happy New Year!
