      I used black eyed peas and ham hocks. Came out very good. Corn bread is a nice touch!

      At Di's suggestion, I tried this recipe to use a hambone that I found in my freezer. It was really delicious. The kids really enjoyed this and loved the addition of cornbread. The hambone was seasoned enough, so I didn't need to add additional salt or pepper. I rinsed the beans several times and picked through the soaked beans to get rid of as many of the membranes as possible. I also had a small amount of minced ham that I added in to heat through. Thank you for posting this, it will be a favorite for us!

      Very yummy! Easy to make. I used black-eyed beans, chicken stock instead of water and a pound of baked ham diced small instead of the ham bone.
