This is so easy..just wash the peas,dice the veggies, and toss in the pot with spices and ham hocks. (A meaty ham bone can be substituted for the ham hocks) Prepare early, simmer 4 hours, and enjoy. This gets better and better everyday after being in the fridge. This recipe came from an old church cookbook I found years ago. I recommend stirring the pot whenever you pass by the gets smoother and smoother with every stir.
