Southern Style Black Eyed Peas Recipe

I used to not like black eyed peas at all!  Every time they would show up at the dinner table I would pass them over and not give them a second glance.  Well, I don’t know if it’s being pregnant or my tastes have changed but I started craving black eyed peas a few weeks ago and I must say….I’m converted to a black eyed pea lover!  I think part of the problem was that I never cooked them correctly….silly me would follow the directions on the freezer bag and just boil them in water for 20 minutes.  To make REAL Southern Style black eyed peas you have to do a little bit more work….but it’s SOOOOOO worth it…the taste is completely different!

Ingredients:

12 oz bag of frozen black eyed peas

2 Cups Chicken Stock (I highly suggest my homemade Chicken Stock recipe)

1/2 Small onion diced

1 TBS Butter

1/4 Cup cubed ham (you can also use cooked bacon)

1 tsp Salt

Directions:

Combine all ingredients into a pot and bring to a boil.

Once boiling, lower the heat and simmer for 45 minutes.
