Black-eyed peas are NOT just a Southern New Year's Day tradition. Paired with Jalapeno Maple Bacon Cornbread you can celebrate all year long. Nutrition runs amock in this massively-tasty stew. You can simmer this for a couple hours, but it is also a great slow-cook / crockpot dish. This is a pretty well-liked and common food south of the M-D line and another gastronomic legacy of the Creole-Soul kitchens. Thanks to my mom and Chef Emeril for the initial inspiration in 2005. I've added a couple of ingredients that I feel enhance not only the flavor, but the aroma of this dish.
