Add peas to 6 cups of water in a large bowl and soak overnight. Drain peas and rinse. Place peas in a large pot with 6 cups of water and bring to boil on medium-high.
Cover and reduce heat to a simmer for about 45 minutes or until peas are tender. If they are drying out before being tender then add extra water.
Stir in onion, garlic, bell pepper, thyme, cayenne, salt and black pepper into the peas and continue to cook until sauce is thickened. Served with cornbread and collards greens.
