This was a good recipe. I didn't use the thyme and bay leave instead I used Cajun Spice and Smoked Pork Neck bones. Dee-lish!!!

Thank you for the recipe. I will try it with pork head. It has gel that makes it thick and tasty.

I also grew up in the south and we always used pigs FEET - I guess that goes along with the "moving forward" in the new year. I can't say I ever ate the pigs feet as a child - could you season the peas with them instead?

The video tells you to go to the website for the recipe. Chef John says he's from foodwishes.com at the very beginning of the video. I haven't checked this website, but you can probably find it there.
