Black-Eye Peas for New Years (100 g serving)

Submitted by: REVJVH

Introduction

Black-eyed Peas are supposed to bring luck at New Year's. I figure it can't hurt!

I use 100-grams as the serving size because it's easy to figure out. I usually actually eat about 150 grams in a serving.

Ingredients

    1 lb dried black-eyed peas
    1 lb smoked ham hock
    1 large or 2 small onions
    Garlic (I used about 7 cloves, but I love garlic)
    Water to cover peas by a couple of inch


Directions

Sort through black-eyed peas to remove any small stones or debris. Put them in a 5-quart Crockpot.

Cut the meat off the ham hock and dice it. Add meat and bone to Crockpot.

Peel and dice onion. Peel and mince garlic. Add to Crockpot.

Fill the Crockpot to about an inch or half-inch below the rim with water.

Turn the Crockpot on low and go do whatever you do on New Year's Eve. Let this cook all night on low. It'll be perfect in the morning or at lunch.

NOTE: I don't add salt because my butcher adds a fair amount of seasoning before he smokes the ham hocks. You'll want to season to taste. If you add salt, wait until the beans have softened to do so.

I figure this should make 20-25 100-gram servings. (I use a slotted spoon to measure out the serving, then add some broth after I've weighed the food. YUM!)
