Blackeyed Peas for New Years...How do you like yoursPage 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Happy New Years everybody...

I saved (in the freezer) the Christmas Ham Bone, and Im ready to make my slightly spicy New Years Blackeyed Peas with Cornbread.

1/2 way thru the cooking
I add Crushed tomato, chopped onion, 1 whole serrano pepper, 1 bay leaf, 2 cloves crushed garlic, 1/4 tsp cumin powder, s & p to taste.

do you have this tradition and how do you like yours?

Yep, got the tradition... even the cornbread, but I make cornpones. Usually I use a ham hock, but this year I cooked a ham for the holiday & will be using it. I add the onions to mine & leave out the tomato (just not a big fan).

In E. Tennessee, the tradition is blackeyes peas with slices of fried hog jowl.

wow... here in the north most people don't even know what blackeyed peas are. Your recipe sounds great! Personally, I love the taste of blackeyed peas just how they are, and I'm happy to have them boiled up with just some salt and a little butter--- but now you got me cravin'....

Believe it or not, I have never eaten black eyed peas! Must be cuz I am a Cannuck!
I assume a ham hock is like what we call pork hocks here. The recipe you posted Blues does sound mighty tasty. Any chance you could whip some up and send em UPS?

Darlin'...you sound like a cook after my own heart. There are always slices of raw onion on my table, along with hot sauce. Always butter... if not, why bother? Bacon grease, in moderation, only a couple of TBLS for Chicken Fried Steak & gravy. NO BEANS in my chili & NO FILE in my gumbo. But are things that I only cook once or twice a year... got to stay healthy.

OK... enough off topic of blackeyed peas. FOCUS! I had an aunt from Taylor, Tx. that would put greens (any that were handy at the time) in her dinner. Any suggestions on the type?

I make a casserole.

Bacon
onions
garlic
2 small cans green chilis
2 can or bag of blacked eyed peas
cornbread mix
garlic powder
salt
pepper

don't have the measurements, i just wing it...

add them all together and then top with cornbread and bake...always been a hit even to those who don't like them.

I'm loving this thread. Born in the north, live in the north...but this is going to become a new New Year's tradition. Well, at least I think so. The black eyed peas are soaking as I type.

Shannalee, I like your approach, I may go with that one.

Had a boyfriend who could stew up a mess of greens that anyone would love!!
First you cook up a big pot of hamhocks and make plenty of smoky, salty broth. Then you add the fresh greens. He used a combination of collard and mustard greens together. You add pepper---mostly black pepper, but you might want some Louisiana hotsauce too. If you want onion, go ahead and add it, but mostly you don't need it with the greens. Cook the devil out of those greens until they are plain old mush and then serve it up 'side some cornbread that's been cooked in a hot iron skillet and drippin' with butter. Yup, it's not your usual northern diet, but I kind of fell for it...

Shannalee, Interesting concept that I will have to try. It sounds delicious. Have you ever tried it with pinto beans? Thanks for the info.

Roasted Chili with Black-eyed Peas
This is how I make them with some zing ..The bean spouts doesn't taste like you think.. but rinse them well n use only 1/2 a can unless making more. Enjoy

Ham slice or bone as much as you like
2-3 roasted anaheim chilies peeled de stemed with seeds
1 -15 oz. black eye peas drain
1-15 oz. Hunts Diced Tomatoes
½ -15.oz. bean sprouts drain
1-2 T. garlic cloves minced or 1 tsp. granular*
1 onion small chopped or 1 tsp. granular *
water to cover

Roasted chilies- let set in brown bag for 15 minutes – peel- destem ñ chop with seeds or remove from freezer ñ chop. I have on hand in freezer bags. Cube meat
Throw all into soup pot -bring to boil turn down to simmer till meat tender.

~Note~* as much as you like for taste as is with roasted fresh peppers

this is a lite soup not much in it but will serve about 4 nicely n very easy to make. Not highly spiced. If you add about 1 lb. ham or more after it cooks - defat the broth.

I usually cook the dried black eyed peas that I have soaked overnight, but this year I am eating Luck's canned peas. I don't love them, so last time I made a potfull most got thrown away. I am making fried pork chops, cabbage, sweet potatoes, (either baked with honey butter and cinnamon or with marshmallows or candied), rutabagas,and collards. Add cornbread and tea and I will be stuffed. When I make black eyed peas, I add water, onion, garlic, either salt pork or bacon and cook until soft, then add salt and pepper. I like Goya brand of dried peas and beans.

Born near Boston now living near Atlanta, GA.
I have enjoyed a traditional southern style New Years for 19 years.
Black Eyed Peas for luck, collard greens for money. With the economy in the toilet
I would not dare skip! In fact I may have collards twice today.
This year I made corn bread, pickled beets and fried okra too...yummy!
Happy New Year!

This is the recipe I've done for years! Learned it when I was very young:
2 lbs. black eye peas
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 pound of country ribs
dash of black pepper
1 tablespoon of sugar
1/4 teaspoon of red pepper
1 tablespoon teaspoon Lawry's seasoned salt
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic
Soak black eye peas overnight. Drain. Wash peas and cover with water and baking soda. Bring to a good boil. Drain. In heavy pot, brown country ribs, onion and garlic. When ribs are golden brown, add peas, salt, sugar, black and red pepper. Cover with hot water out of kettle. Bring to a fast boil. Reduce heat and simmer on low for 2 hours.

Sometimes I've taken leftovers and made next-day-fritters. In a food processor, process peas, garlic, salt & pepper. Add a few tablespoons of water or broth while continuing to process; enough water to get a smooth, thick puree. Preheat oven to 250ºF. In a large skillet, heat 2 to 3 inches oil & fry 1 tablespoon of the batter till its golden brown. Repeat till all the batter has been fried in this way. Keep in oven to keep hot. Serve piping hot, sprinkled with salt & lime juice.
Good Eatins' Rusty!

This not black eyed peas but a New Years day meal with~

Happy New Year to all. Well.. Looks like going to a friends having in the ground whole lamb cooked. And next day
I am making a pork roast in the oven with~

Browned Pork loin roast all sides in little olive oil seasoned salt ñ pepper added sliced in angle pieces of kielbasa and cooked it in same roaster with. Pork in large roasting pan adding extremely well rinsed and drained store brought sauerkraut - 2 large onions ñ 2 celery ribs chopped and some celery leaves with 4 or 5 garlic diced - with some pearl barley maybe 1 /2 to move cups , coved with water in bake covered till extremely tender stir once in awhile and adjust seasoning ñ golf and stir turn meat at least once ...once in awhile, Star out at 425 °F. 10 minutes and turn down to 325 to 350 °F. Now covered. Bake slowly till meat falling apart will brown in color and will have the right consistency of broth . Serve over mashed taters or serve over or in bread or just munch away- when baked- the consistency is not real thick but not soupy. More like an alfredo sauce consistency a little thinner.

What are all you having??

SAguy- I also save my ham bone from Christmas, I slow cook the beans with the ham bone over low heat, add some Zaterins, a great Cajun seasoning I love.
Cornbread is a necessity, I make mine spicy, dicing jalapeno into it, I also add cheese to the mix, usually a blend of pepper jack and American, five minutes before it's done, I top it with more cheese.
Serve with butter and chopped onions, yummmy!
