Fresh Pink Eye Peas In The Crock Pot

This recipe is simple to let the delicate flavors of the Pink Eye Peas shine. Just a hint of garlic, a little bit of sugar (because my grandmother said so!) and a little Liquid Smoke to give it a bacon free smokiness. I have included some optional ingredients to be used if you would like to mix it up!
