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.

Prep: 25 mins
Cook: 40 mins
Total: 1 hr 5 mins
Serves:

Ingredients

  • 1 ham bone, preferably from glazed ham
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 8 cups water, or more as needed
  • 1 lb dried black-eyed peas, may use navy beans instead

optional:

  • ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tbsp honey

Instructions

  1. 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.

  2. Add onion and continue to sauté a minute or two until mostly translucent.
  3. Add water to cover bone, along with spice and honey (if needed).
  4. Simmer 30 minutes or until ham is tender.
  5. Remove ham and allow to cool.
  6. Sort and rinse peas; add peas to pot and reduce heat to Med.
  7. Simmer peas 45 min. to 1 hour or until tender, adding water if needed to achieve desired consistency.

  8. Meanwhile, remove bits of ham from bone, chop, and add back to peas.
  9. Add salt to taste and serve with cornbread or (at our house) jalapeno cornbread.
  10. Freezes and reheats great!
