How to Make Utton Ham and Beans
- Slice Onion and then halve the slices so you have strips. Saute' these in the Fat from the ham till they are browned some. If you only like them clear, then that works too. ( I make this in my cast Iron Deep skillet)
- Add the cut up ham, chopped or stripped, and cook for a bit, (about 3 minutes) or a little more if you like your ham a bit seared.
- Add in the Crowder peas and the Black eyed peas. Stir. Add in the Ham Drippings and enough water to make it as soup or Stew like as you prefer. Too much water and you will thin out your Ham flavor. Cook till it reaches a bubbling simmer.
