Black Eye Pea Soup

New Years Luck! I’ll take some of that!

Black Eye Pea Soup

Black eye pea soup.  I’ll take some of that, too.  Our fam has made this a tradition.  Lucky Black Eye Pea Soup on…or around New Years Day.  We try and hit New Years Day, but we still count it if it’s in the month of January!  Now, before we begin this journey to lucky soup, please remember I AM NOT A CHEF.  I just pretend a few times a year.  There are about 5 killer things I can make and most have to do with a crock pot or pre-made dough.   My hubby is the cook in the family (thank goodness)  so I’ll make sure he reads over this before this post is live so I don’t miss any steps.

Get the ol’ hard black eye beans and soak them the night before.

Drain and rinse and start to cook them.  Look on the back of the bean package to see how much water and  how long they need to simmer.  It’s about 4 hours.  Throw in the ham hock from Christmas Dinner…if you still have it.  If not, they sell them for cheap at the grocery store.

When your beans are getting close to softness saute your onions to a nice brown color.

Chop the carrots. Black Eye Pea Soup

Pull out the ham hock and scrap the top layer of stuff off the water.  Add the actual ham chunks.   Taste the broth and see if it needs more flavor.  I’ve found adding some chicken bouillon will help if you are low on flavor.

When your beans are soft throw in the onions, carrots, green peppers and simmer for 20 minutes.
