Black Eyed Peas & Ham Hocks

1 lb dried black eyed peas

3 c water

2 smoked ham hocks

Place all ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low for 7 hours. Remove meat from ham hocks and combine with beans. You could also cook everything in a dutch oven on the stove. If so, bring to a boil, skim scum, and simmer for 2 hours before separating meat from ham hocks.
