Why I Love This Recipe

Uh. Andy's my husband. His ancestry, when asked, is "Southern." So, New Year's Day we eat Black Eyed Peas and Corn Bread. It's sposed to be Lucky. Which it is for me. He makes food, I sit here, and then we eat. That's luck already!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 LB Black Eyed Peas (he uses dried and soaks them overnight to re-hydrate)

1 Onion (chopped)
"Some" fresh garlic (3 cloves I've decided arbitrarily) (chopped)
1 TBLS Vegetable Oil
2 C. Water
A Ham Hock (his mom uses Salt Pork) "You just need a fatty meat thing"

Tabasco Sauce (couple shakes)
1 TBLS Worcestershire Sauce
Black Pepper


1 LB Black Eyed Peas (he uses dried and soaks them overnight to re-hydrate)

In a pot, put in the vegetable oil and sauté the onion and garlic until soft (5 min ish)

Add 2 C of water and the Ham Hock

Cook "a little while until there's a meaty gravy" (20-30 min I've decided arbitrarily)

Add the peas and water to cover

A couple of shakes of Tabasco Sauce

Add 1 TBLS Worcestershire Sauce

Add Fresh ground black pepper to taste

"Boil a couple hours until done" (the peas should be soft but not mushy I've decided arbitrarily)
