    I saw this in this month's Southern Living magazine. The recipe looked really yummy so I thought I would add this dish to my New Year's spread. Excellent call, I might add. I am not a black-eyed pea fan, but I thoroughly enjoyed this dish. My husband had seconds, and proclaimed that this dish will always be a part of our New Year's meal. My only change to the dish is that I used 1/2 a large onion, because my husband is not an onion fan (he didn't know the onion was in there; all of the flavors mesh well). I also used Smithfield salt pork.

    Followed recipe, except, I used a smoked turkey neck instead of the salt pork and a put a bay leaf in the pot while it simmered; delicious!
