    Anyone else fixing black-eyed peas for new years?

    We do it every year, supposed to bring good luck.

    Plus I love beans of all kinds.

    My black eyed peas are all in good working order, so no.

    Cool, got the greens and cornbread, leftover ham joint instead of jowls.

    Black eyed peas.

    Hate to admit it since that is a black cultural appropriation don't you know
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Hoppin' John

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Jump to: navigation, search
    Alternative names Carolina Peas and Rice
    Course Meal
    Place of origin Southern United States
    Region or state The Carolinas
    Main ingredients field peas and rice, chopped onion, sliced bacon
    Variations substitute ham hock, fatback, or country sausage for the conventional bacon, or smoked turkey parts as a pork alternative.
    Cookbook: Hoppin' John Media: Hoppin' John
    Hoppin' John, also known as Carolina Peas and Rice is a peas and rice dish served in the Southern United States. It is made with black-eyed peas (or red cowpeas such as iron and clay peas in the Southeast US) and rice, chopped onion, sliced bacon, and seasoned with salt.[1] In some recipes, instead of bacon, ham hock, fatback, or country sausage, or smoked turkey parts. A few use green peppers or vinegar and spices. Smaller than black-eyed peas, field peas are used in the Low Country of South Carolina and Georgia; black-eyed peas are the norm elsewhere.
    In the southern United States, eating Hoppin' John on New Year's Day is thought to bring a prosperous year filled with luck.[2][3] The peas are symbolic of pennies or coins, and a coin is sometimes added to the pot or left under the dinner bowls.[4] Collard greens, mustard greens, turnip greens, chard, kale, cabbage and similar leafy green vegetables served along with this dish are supposed to further add to the wealth, since they are the color of American currency.[5] Another traditional food, cornbread, can also be served to represent wealth, being the color of gold. On the day after New Year's Day, leftover "Hoppin' John" is called "Skippin' Jenny" and further demonstrates one's frugality, bringing a hope for an even better chance of prosperity in the New Year.[
