I had leftover holiday ham in my freezer, a bag of black-eyed peas in my pantry and was totally craving some comforting soul food over the weekend… and I wanted it as quickly as I could get it.
Instant Pot to the rescue!
The best part???
SOAKING THE PEAS IS NOT REQUIRED.
All you have to do is rinse and sort the black-eyed peas.
How long does it take for Black-Eyed Peas and Ham to cook in the Instant Pot?
It takes approximately 55 minutes TOTAL. This includes:
- 5 minutes prep time
- 15 minutes for the pot to come to pressure (this is how long it took my pot)
- 15 minutes manual (high) pressure
- 20 minutes NPR (natural pressure release)
If you prefer your black-eyed peas a little on the firmer side, I’d recommend a 15-minute NPR instead of 20 minutes.
