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.
