black-eyed new year

  • black-eyed peas
  • broth
  • butter
  • fresh lemon juice
  • red pepper flakes
  • salt & fresh ground pepper
  1. clean & rinse peas
  2. put peas in large heavy pot w/ just enough water to cover & a good amount of salt
  3. cook peas on low until water is absorbed
  4. add broth to cover peas and continue cooking on low
  5. when peas are cook how you like them stir in lots of butter, as many pepper flakes as you can stand and fresh lemon juice, zest too if you want
  6. salt & pepper individual servings to taste
this was surprisingly good (I guess w/ butter I should have known) though not much to look at. It would also be delicious w/ the traditional ham hock for hoppin' john or some bacon, I also tried some w/ a little fish sauce stirred in and it was great.

I'd serve it w/ rice and braised winter greens.
