How to make it

  • Make sure the peas have been soaked overnight
  • Chop the celery, carrots and onion
  • Heat a stock pot or dutch oven over medium heat and add olive oil (you may need a bit more or less, depending in the pot)
  • Add the vegetables to the pot and cook until onions are clear, stirring every few minutes (this may take 10-15 minutes)
  • Add the ham, add enough chicken broth to cover and bring to a boil
  • Once boiling, add the beans and the bay leaves
  • Bring to a boil once again, and then reduce heat to slow simmer (mediumlow seems to work on my stove)
  • Add several grinds of black pepper
  • Let simmer for 4 1/2 to 6 hours, adding black pepper to taste from time to time
  • After 2 hours, remove ham meat from the bones and leave larger bones in the pot
  • Remove bay leaves and bones
  • Serve with rice

    A really nice first recipe,looking forward to many more.

    This would be excellent to have on New Years Day.

    Grandma always had Blackeyed Peas,on the first day of the new year,"For Good Luck".
