    Re: Blackeyed peas ... who is having them for New Years?

    My uncle always said you had to have black eyed peas and ham for New Years to bring good luck. He lived in Kansas. When I mention that in Ohio, people give me funny looks - here it's pork and sauerkraut! I have no recipes to share but I'm glad to see someone else mention black eyed peas for New Year's!

      We always have Hoppin' John which is a combo of sauteed onions, ham, black eyed peas and rice. I use a recipe I saw on TV years ago by Justin Wilson.

        I am making mine today. Ham hocks and black eyed peas and cornbread.

        I quick cook my beans - sort, then boil them in water for about 3 minutes, then turn off the heat, cover and let sit for an hour. Drain off the water (I use it to water plants around the house), put in the ham hocks and add water (or chicken stock for more flavor) to cover well. Season with black pepper and salt. Simmer that for a couple of hours, adding water if needed. Take out the ham hocks, cool, and cut the meat off the bone. Remove about 1/3 to 1/2 of the beans and mash or put them through a blender with some of the pot liquid for a bit and add it back to the pot with the meat as well. Season to taste. I add some Tabasco to flavor it a bit.

        Some people cook up some onions and garlic and add that to the beans with the ham hocks. Others add parsley to the pot after it's done, but I prefer to chop up a few green onions (white and green parts) for some color.

        Then I make a pan of cornbread. After that, it's a matter of how long does it take to cool the cornbread just enough to get it out of the pan and buttered without burning my hand

          Blackeye peas and cornbread here too. My relatives also add collard greens ()... something I could never get my taste buds around. So I substitute spinach.

            Yes siree, being from N.C. we always have blackeyed peas and ham hocks and iron skillet cornbread. That is a tradition in our family.

              MM's mom used to make black eyed peas and collard greens every year. One was for health, the other for wealth. I'd go have my spoonful each year to make her happy, but I'm not a fan of either.

                  Yes , black eye peas, but also have a pot pinto beans , we don't care a lot for black eye peas so we put a couple of tablespoons on top of corn and pinto beans. And of course a big serving fried potatoes. We are originally from Oklahoma and so keep this tradition in Kansas.

                    Very interesting thread about this tradition. We here at the Atkinson household have been having SEAFOOD for quite a number of years now, lobster, shrimp, scallops and steak. Mmmmm can hardly wait to people to get here, getting hungry.

                      I usually have steaming home made bread with a slow-cooked pot of chili.

                        Definitely having black eyed peas at our house, corn bread, fried potatoes and cabbage ( can't take greens). It is not my favorite but have to stick with tradition.

                          Since I won't be awake at midnight I'd like to wish everyone a very happy New Year. Tomorrow we will have the southern standard of black eyed peas, collards, pork roast and cornbread.

                            Does Mexican beans in the crockpot count?

                              No food New Years Eve traditions in our family but when I was a kid my brothers, sisters and I played Bingo. It was our grandfather's BDay and he would tell us stories about growing up in Brooklyn in the early 1900's. Wish I coud remember them now.
