I have to agree with Kristy1101, but I think the issue is the process of dumping it all together and boiling it. Really? Who would want to eat that? Yuck! If that's how you're going to cook, just buy canned. Now. if the recipe instructed us to: saute the onions and Kielbasa in 2 T butter, season with crumbled bouillon cubes, and cook until the sausage is browned. Then add the the beans and cover with 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer with the lid askew (allowing steam to escape). Check the peas after 1 hour and every 30 minutes afterwards or until the peas are soft. Add additional water, if needed, This process will allow the flavors to blend and mature and the Black Eyed Peas will be amazing. You decide. Yuck peas or awesome peas?
