Blackeyed peas for good luck
Anyone have a old family recipe. Mine is just add bacon and seasoning. My mon had a good one but she's now strumin the harp for a little over a year. God I miss that gal.[p]Cheers and HNY, Glenn[p]
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
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.

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
Got my collards, got my peas, a pork tenderloin for the egg-n-me and makins for a pone on cornbread, OH Yea, it's gonna be a good day tomorrow.
Rusty Rooster,[p]Don't forget the Hog Jowl
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.
