Think about it.
Don't throw away money. Eat some black eyed peas today.
Oh, and Happy New Year!
Update: This year, I made my Hoppin John with pork belly instead of ham, tasso or ham hocks. Pork belly is not smoked or cured the way bacon or hog jowls are. It comes out a bit bland, but the meat content is much higher than either of the others. I cooked it in bacon grease and added oregano and thyme to the mix and it came out excellent.
