    Here is one a friend of mine did in the 80's when we did New Year's Day for many!
    Peas, Black Eyed, Tennessee Jeanne's New Years Day
    [p]2 Lbs. Black Eyed Peas, Dried
    2-4 Lbs. Ham Hocks, Smoked
    2-3 Medium Onions, Sliced
    Lawry Seasoning
    Salt/Black Pepper to taste

    Soak dried peas for 12 hours/overnight. Drain. Place in heavy pot with all other ingredients. Cover with water + 2 inches, bring to heavy boil, cover, reduce to simmer, cook 4-6 hours. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

  • wobin,
    I have always just cooked them with fat back. But putting some jalapeno's in them are really good. Don't forget them there collard greens. [p]Chef Jerry

    I used that for the first time this year and it was superior to the ham hocks that I had been using. My basic recipe is:[p]soak 1 lb beans overnight,
    add a little oil to a pot over medium-high heat,
    render the fat from the jowl,
    add one medium onion & one green bell pepper,
    cook until onion is translucent,
    add garlic and cook for 2 min,
    add a few tablespoons of red wine vinegar and scrape anything that stuck to the bottom,
    add the soaked beans & cover with 1 qt of chicken stock + 2 bay leaves,
    let it gently simmer for a couple of hours until beans are tender but not mushy.[p]If you like it spicy, just add some minced jalapeno and maybe some adobe sauce.
