New Year's Day Black-eyed Peas

In order to bring prosperity and luck to your household, it is traditional to eat black-eyed peas. I am not too sure about the prosperity part, but I am certain about the taste.

Give this wonderful recipe a try.

  • 1 pound dry black-eyed peas
  • 2 cups chopped cooked ham
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pinch garlic powder
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can whole tomatoes
  1. Place black-eyed peas in 8 quart pot. Add enough water to fill pot 3/4 full.
  2. Stir in ham and diced onions, and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  3. Place tomatoes in a blender or food processor, and blend until the tomatoes are liquefied. Add tomatoes to pot.
  4. Bring all ingredients to boil. Cover the pot, and simmer on low heat for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until the peas are tender.
