Black Eyed Peas Recipe

1 pound

1/4 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon
black-eyed peas
meaty ham hock

Recipe Cooking Time: 90 minutes
Pan Type: saucepan

Black Eyed Peas Directions

Wash and sort the black eyed peas.
Cover with twice as much water as there are peas.
Cover and let black eyed peas set overnight. Next day pour off water.
Place peas in pan along with the ham hock.
Add the water, pepper and salt.
Bring mixture to a boil.
Cover reduce heat and simmer black eyed peas for the allotted time or until peas and meat is tender.
Remove the ham hocks.
Cut the meat off the bones and return meat to black eyed peas.

Note: We make these every New Years, it has been a tradition for years in our family. I read while in Florida years ago about different meals that people eat on New Years day. The one that caught my eye was this one. It said if one would eat rice, pork, black-eyed peas and greens, that it was supposed to bring you good luck. So we started doing it. Rice is supposed to bring you riches, pork is for prosperity, black-eyed peas I believe is for health and the greens are for greenbacks (money). Although we put our faith in God and not in luck we have enjoyed this tradition. Another way to enjoy all of the same ingredients without making so many different dishes is to make a dish called Hopping John and serve it with greens on the side.

Recipe Serves: 6 – 8

Substitute, substitute, substitute. Recipes were made to be messed with. Use alternative ingredients to make your recipes healthier. Cook with broth (low-sodium vegetable, low-fat chicken or beef) instead of with oils. Use vinaigrettes or citrus-juice-based dressings instead of creamy ones, which are often full of saturated fat. Try olive oil, skim milk, or yogurt instead of butter or cream. Re-work dessert recipes that require heavy cream with evaporated skim milk or yogurt. For cakes and other desserts, substitute fresh-fruit puree as a topping instead of frosting. And one of my favorites: pancakes with applesauce, not maple syrup. These changes will give your favorite recipes great new flavor, and your food will be healthier!
