If you enjoy the southern tradition of eating black-eyed peas on New Year's Day, take heart! I have worked on this recipe and removed some of the items that are high in potassium and phosphorus and made it still very yummy for you. We have a black-eyed peas renal recipe for you.
Cook bacon in a 5 qt Dutch Oven over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, leaving grease and drippings in the pan to cook the onions in. Crumble bacon and set aside.
Add the chopped onion to the drippings in the pan; saute for about 4 minutes until clear. Add the broth, water, black pepper, and blackeyed peas, then bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer 55 minutes or until peas are tender and water is evaporated. Add vinegar, which will make a gravy like appearance to the peas. Ladle even amounts into 4 serving dishes. Serve over rice if desired. Top with crumbled bacon.
