Black Eyed Peas with Ham

kept bytihleigh

You can soak the black eyed peas overnight, or use the quick soak method I've outlined in the recipe, which cuts the soaking time down to 1 hour. This is also a perfect recipe for the slow cooker -- just make sure you don't add the greens until near the end to keep them vibrant green (and not dull, lifeless green which you wouldn't want for the new year anyways). Recipe adapted from Food Wishes.


1/2 pound dried black eyed peas
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 carrots, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1/2 large onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 smoked ham hocks
1 ham bone (or use any pork bones)
6-8 cups water
3 cups diced ham
1-2 large tomatoes, diced
5 handfuls torn kale leaves (tough stems removed)
salt to taste
