Black Eyed Peas for New Years Day
Every new years day my mother made black eyed peas for good luck.
2 cups dried black eyed peas
1 small ham hock
1 medium onion, chopped
4 slices bacon, cooked
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
a little cayenne pepper
In a large bowl soak dried black eyed peas in water overnight or for about 8 hours. The next day, drain water. In a saucepan add black eyed peas and add enough water to cover all of the dried peas plus an extra 2 inches. Bring to a boil then reduce to low heat, cover, and simmer for about 30 minutes. Add ham hock, onion, garlic, and seasoning. Then add some more water. Bring to a boil again, reduce to low heat, cover and simmer for another hour. Taste it and add more seasoning if it needs it. Serve with some Tabasco or other hot sauce and sweet pickle relish. This also goes well with corn bread.
