Black eye Peas & Hog Jowl
Soak your peas in a bowl of water overnight.
I am going to put mine into a crock pot tonight because I soaked them today.
In the morning Season with salt and pepper
you may put a piece of hog jowl in pot to cook with them
or slice and fry or bake the hog jowl just like you would cook bacon. Use a little of the pan drippings to season the peas.
Another Method of Cooking
If you forget to soak your black eye peas do what my mama does.
1.) Cover peas with water in pot, bring to a boil, cover, turn off eye... then
after they stop boiling.
2.) Bring to boil again cover turn off stove eye, ...then
after they stop boiling...
3.)Bring to a boil for the third time, cover turn off stove eye...then
After the peas stop boiling, lift lid test for done ness then season with salt, pepper, dripping etc. your choice. They are usually pretty good and it is an easy way to cook them.
