Carl Redding's Black-Eyed Peas And Collard Greens
To make the black-eyed peas Carl combines red pepper and equal parts adobo, garlic powder, onion powder, canola oil in a pan. Then adds enough chicken broth to cover. In place of the usual salted pork, Carl adds a smoked turkey wing to the pot of peas. The amount of seasoning you use depends on the quantity of peas you are cooking. Cook on a low heat for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Carl uses the same approach when preparing collard greens. In a separate pan from the peas combine collard greens, crushed red pepper, wing, and equal parts cider vinegar, adobo, onion powder, garlic powder, canola oil and brown sugar. Simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
