New Years Black Eye Peas

A tradition for many of us, southern or not, (I'm not). Very healthy little bean, right up there with black beans and crowder peas for nutritional value.

How'd you all make them? Post your recipes.

Here's my basic:

soak peas over night

broth with ham hock and a slosh of white wine

chop and saute onion garlic carrot celery (and this year parsnip too)

simmer together with bay leaf and a few sprigs of thyme couple hours

blanche and chop your fave dark leafy green (kale this year), add to pot.

slice and brown smoked or garlic sausage, add to pot (or leftover ham)

cut meat off hock add to pot, discard bone

adjust salt and pepper

serve over rice with crusty bread and hot sauce

(could easily be made with smoked turkey legs and wings if preferred)

Can't believe no one at DC does BEP for New Years. However, I can believe they're busy and not posting today. bump

LOL, I do mine "around" new years'. I use a bean that looks like a BEP but we call it Dr. Giles' bean, beacuse it was developed by a friend of my late FIL. Am cooking them today
