Southern cooking at its finest! Get ready to have some good luck in the New Year if you have this dish on New Years! This recipe is totally "from scratch", using dried beans and fresh ingredients. For a short cut, you could use canned or frozen black eyed peas, but try the dried peas...they don't take that long to cook once they have soaked for a while. I can make a meal of this by itself, just by adding a piece of cornbread! I hope you enjoy this as much as my family has in the past. Please note: Prep time does not include soaking time!
