    Happy New Year! and thanks for a wonderful new way to fix black-eyed peas. I am enjoying a bowl of them this morning January 1, 2008!

    An absolute must for New Year's day, along with the collards, cornbread and fried apples. I make mine with smoked turkey wings to cut some of the fat and it isn't as unctuous but it still has that smokey flavor that I crave. I love black eyed peas. Anyone hooked on Trappey's brand with green chiles added? Love those for a quick supper.

    Sounds great. I never ate black-eyed peas till I moved down south 20 years ago. I have to say I love them, and collard greens too. I never realized what I was missing. Thanks for the recipe.

    You read my mind - I was just searching for a good black-eyed pea recipe for 2008 (I usually end up making a box of Zatarain's Black-Eyed Peas & Rice, boxed cornbread, and a can of Allen's Southern-Style Seasoned Greens for New Year's - time for a change!)
