  1. Rinse, pick over, and place the peas in a large bowl. Cover with several inches of cool water; let stand 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Pour the water into a large saucepan or soup pot. Add the bouillon cubes and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally to dissolve the bouillon. Stir in the peas, reduce heat, and bring to a simmer.
  3. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Crumble the bacon and set aside.
  4. Melt the butter in the pan with the bacon grease; cook and stir the onions until they begin to turn brown at the edges, about 10 minutes. Stir the onions and cooking fat into the peas; add the crumbled bacon, ham, and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer the peas over low heat for 8 hours, stirring every hour.

Made these again this year. I only substituted the chicken bouillon for beef. Because chickens and other fowl move backward as they eat, that's not want you want for the new year. :0)

My whole life we have always been made to eat black eyed peas on New Years day, and I have always hated them! My parents would always just open a can of black eyed peas, heat them in the microw...

Very tasty. I made some variations, only because I cook with what i have on hand. Didn't have bacon but used bacon grease. Also sauteed some carrots, celery and garlic with the onions and spr...

Dave.. I'm from Savannah, Georgia and we always used hog jowl with our peas. I have mine ready as well as greens for money.

This recipe is OFF THE CHAIN, Dave!!! I just made them yesterday for New Year's Day. These were so unbelievably good that my family had thirds!!! I didn't change a thing. Soooo tasty. Thank...

had to coddle a little more than i thought as the beans soaked up the water more than once. but worth all the work - these beans were the bomb! I will definitely make them again.
