Welcome to Finicky Friday
Recipe by: Roxanna Parks
We're doing it a little early since I have a release Friday. Oh, and remember, black-eyed peas on New Year's Day brings good luck for the entire year!
3 h 15 m
1 pound dry black-eyed peas
2 cups chopped cooked ham
salt and pepper to taste
1 pinch garlic powder
2 onions, diced
1 (14.5 ounce) can whole tomatoes
Place black-eyed peas in 8 quart pot. Add enough water to fill pot 3/4 full. Stir in ham and diced onions, and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Place tomatoes in a blender or food processor, and blend until the tomatoes are liquefied. Add tomatoes to pot. Bring all ingredients to boil.
Cover the pot, and simmer on low heat for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until the peas are tender.
