Use a LARGE POT. Boil the frozen black eye peas as directed on the back of the bag. Add the diced tomatoes and diced ham when almost done. Boil the turnips in another large pot with a few cups of water. Season with salt and pepper and anything else you want. Include the hot sauce as well if you want.
