Southern Black-Eyed Peas

"I love black-eyed peas! I'd much rather have fresh peas than dried, but I'll take them anyway I can get them. I don't remember where I found this recipe, but I really like it. The original recipe used salt pork, but I use bacon. Give me a bowl of these peas, a dash of Tabasco, a slab of hot-from-the-oven cornbread, some green onions and tomato slices then stand out of the way!"

    I’m not a big black-eye peas fan, but these were fantastic. I put them over some white rice, delicious!
