Black Eyed Peas and Traditions
In our community Black Eyed Peas have always been a traditional dish to celebrate the New Year. Black Eyed Peas and pork are thought to bring luck in the year to come. The peas are available frozen, canned and already season or as a dry good. The peas were introduced to the new world by Spanish and African Slaves. Black Eye Peas are to this day a common southern dish but have gained major popularity in the north too. The more health conscious cook my substitute the “ fat back” (cured salt pork) for smoke turkey legs, tail, beef neck bones, or lean piece of that Christmas Ham or just the bone from the ham. Another tradition that Nana would make sure you did was to clean that house, for it was also considered bad luck to usher in the new year in a dirty house. So put the peas in the crock pot and bust out your Mr. Clean and get down to business, and Happy New Year!
16 ounces dried black-eyed peas, rinsed and sorted
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 cup diced ham
1 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
black pepper, to taste
Presoak peas as directed. Drain the water from the peas and place peas in a crockpot. Add all other ingredients, plus enough water to cover. Stir well to mix. Cover and cook on LOW setting for 8-10 hours
