How to Make New Year's Day Black-Eyed Pea Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash the beans well in cold water several times, then place in a large, heavy stew pot and cover with water.
  2. Allow to soak overnight.
  3. The next morning (start early ~ beans like to take their time), pour off the soaking water, and ham bone, 8 cups of water, onion and seasonings.
  4. Put on the back of the stove and let simmer gently until beans are very tender, usually about 4 hours.
  5. Add more water if needed.
  6. Remove and discard ham bone.
  7. If the water looks a bit scant pour in 1-2 cups more.
  8. When beans are good and tender remove about a cupful of the beans and mash well with some of the bean liquid. (This can be done in a blender, of course).
  9. Return mashed beans to pot, taste for seasoning, and serve steaming hot over freshly cooked white rice.
