    Meredith .F's Note:

    From The Essence of Emeril....Hoppin' John is a New Year's Southern Tradition:Black-Eyed Peas for good luck, ham or ham hock for good health, and the greens for financial success! I have tried several different recipes for this and so far, this is my favorite! I sometimes add chopped spinach or collard greens even though this particular recipe doesn't call for them, and it's so delish that way too! Happy New Year!!

      This was an easy, tasty recipe that was perfect on New Year's Day. I made this exactly as posted, but I wasn't sure what to do with the ham hock, so I just removed it after the peas were cooked. This was nice served over white rice, and I felt that it could almost be a meal in itself. I think I would really like it with some cooked collard or turnip greens added and may try that next time. Thanks for sharing this traditional treat.
