This was a common dish served when we were growing up, especially on new year's. Mom would always make these black eyed peas, soft-fried potatoes, cornbread and sliced fresh vegetables. One of my favorite meals to this day. These internet pictures are examples of this recipe.

  2. In a stock pot, Bring ham bone or ham hock and 1 quart of stock to a boil; simmer for 1 hour before starting to cook beans.
  3. Add the black-eyed peas into pan with pork and add the other quart of stock and enough water to cover the beans by 2 inches.
