my new years black eye peas were so good....cooked them with a ham bone....yumo
I am so glad you love them!!!!
Yesterday was the first time I heard of black-eyed peas for New Years. Do you know how that tradition started or if it's symbolic for anything?
I don't know where it started, but it's supposed to bring prosperity in the new year.
LOL, I thought this was a thread about the group performing somewhere. I am a boomer, but I love that group!
I have actually heard black eyed peas bring good luck. Glad you enjoyed them.
I just heard about this about half an hour ago! My grandparents are coming over for dinner and my grandpa told my mom she HAS to make some. I hate them, but whatever.
Down here in the south we do black eye peas, cabbage and corn bread
I soaked the peas last night, have them in crock pot with some chopped up smoked bacon, would use ham, but did not remember to buy that!
Can't believe more people are not posting on this thread, is this mostly a southern thing? !
Is that what is called Hoppin' John? I've never had it up in here in New England but I've read about it as a New Year's tradition.
I didn't realize that blackeyed peas were a tradition until I read this thread! Cyn (speckledhen) mentioned that she was going to eat hers for lunch today, but I never thought anything of it. If they bring good luck, then no wonder she ate some! I need some too!
I am from Ga and keep my traditions.
I cooked -
A boston butt with 'kraut (in a slow cooker)
hoppin' john (black eyed peas and rice) ( in a slow cooker)
turnips (no collards to be found! ) (in a slow cooker)
baked sweet potatoes (not yams)
