dried black-eyed peas
yellow onions, chopped
cooked ham, cut into bite-size pieces
salt and black pepper to taste
I have never left a review on anything, but MAN these peas were that good. I used the recipe as written except I halfed it can only cooked it 4 hours due to less ingrediants and they were amazing! We lost my grandad this past year and it was his new years peas we gathered around every year, now my family has elected me to carry on that tradition! They were that good! :)
This is a really great recipe. I halved it. Really flavorful not too salty. I had already fried some bacon so I just cut up 6 strips of bacon and added them to the peas and I added 2 tbsp of unsalted butter since I did not have any bacon grease left. I microwaved the bacon. Did not add salt only pepper. I thought 4 bullion cubes would be too much but they were perfectly seasoned. Use vidalia onions or a peru sweet onion for more flavor. For the ham I used left over honey baked ham and removed the honey rind and fat. I think I simmered only about six hours but they were a nice soft consistency. A keeper!!!
Very tasty. I made some variations, only because I cook with what i have on hand. Didn't have bacon but used bacon grease. Also sauteed some carrots, celery and garlic with the onions and sprinkled very little hot pepper in (more for flavor, not enough to make it hot). My two year old even ate it!
Made these again this year. I only substituted the chicken bouillon for beef. Because chickens and other fowl move backward as they eat, that's not want you want for the new year. :0)
My whole life we have always been made to eat black eyed peas on New Years day, and I have always hated them! My parents would always just open a can of black eyed peas, heat them in the microwave and serve.. it's no wonder I hated them! So I decided to make these peas and now I must say that I love black eyed peas!! This recipe was awesome, the only changes I made was to cut it in half (I was only feeding 2.5 people so we didn't need a lot) I used 12 oz. of bacon because I didn't want to use just a partial package and I added a bit of garlic. I also cooked it in the crock pot on low for 4 hours and then on high for 4 hours. My husband even took these to have as a meal at work the next day. I will never go back to canned black eyed peas again :)
Dave.. I'm from Savannah, Georgia and we always used hog jowl with our peas. I have mine ready as well as greens for money.
Holy wow this was fantastic. The only difference is I didn't start the night before so I boiled the BEPs then let it soak for 4 hours. Changed the water and followed the rest of the recipe as instructed. This recipe was the bomb!!!! Takes a bit of work and effort but totally worth it. So good you won't want to share!!!
Made Dave's black eyed pea recipe and it was fabulous. Best tasting peas I have evr eaten.
