Being a Northern Ohio girl we did not raise black-eyed peas. So when we moved to Mississippi I had never heard of eating black eyed peas on New Year's Day to bring good luck, for the coming year. Well, I tried them many ways and was not a fan, until I came across this recipe in a very old Mississippi cookbook. Ah, I finally found a really good recipe and one I enjoy making and eating. I now make this every New Years Day. Hope you will try it and enjoy!
