    Susie in Texas's Note:

    A Southern Classic! In most Southern homes, black-eyed peas are always served on New Year's Day for good luck. I usually cook these early on New Year's Eve day. That way, if we have guests over for a party that night, I can use part of this basic recipe to make "Texas Caviar" which is a fantastic salsa/dip to eat with tortilla chips. (that recipe follows)

      A true Southern classic way of making black-eyed peas. Real comfort food. I used some left over pieces of a pork picnic instead of ham (I already had the leftovers) and used 2 jalapeƱos to make sure I got some heat. 2 peppers is not hot, just of hint of heat. These were really good served with cornbread and green onions. Thanks, Susie for sharing your recipe.

      I would suggest chicken broth over water.

      I make this every year for our traditional "good luck" New Years dish but I include bite sized sliced up smoked sausage links in this which really makes it the "best". Everyone loves my recipe which is so hearty and great tasting with the smoked sausage in it. I also use 2 jalapeños but keep the seeds in with one of them to give some heat. I use the left over meaty hambone from the Christmas ham or you can use ham hocks. I also make a bacon cabbage dish with this. Yummy!!!!
