DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse peas well and pick out dirt and stones (I do not soak mine).
  • Add to a large stock pot.
  • Fill with water up to a little over half full (you may need to add more water (hot) as you go).
  • Add ham hocks, salt and pepper (be careful not to add too much salt because of the ham hocks).
  • Bring to a rapid boil for about 20 minutes. stirring so the peas don't stick.
  • Put on low and simmer 2 1/2 to 3 hours, stirring every so often.
  • When done, you can serve it by itself or over rice.
