How To Make Old-Fashioned Black-Eyed Peas and Ham
By cooking up ham with black-eyed peas, you have yourself a yummy dinner without tempting to order take out.
In a large, heavy soup pot over medium to high heat, brown ham bone in vegetable oil until the bottom is nicely coated with dark brown bits.
- Add onion and continue to sauté a minute or two until mostly translucent.
- Add water to cover bone, along with spice and honey (if needed).
- Simmer 30 minutes or until ham is tender.
- Remove ham and allow to cool.
- Sort and rinse peas; add peas to pot and reduce heat to Med.
Simmer peas 45 min. to 1 hour or until tender, adding water if needed to achieve desired consistency.
- Meanwhile, remove bits of ham from bone, chop, and add back to peas.
- Add salt to taste and serve with cornbread or (at our house) jalapeno cornbread.
- Freezes and reheats great!
