Mike, that is one handy recipe! New Year's Day is coming, and all of us Rebels are required to eat Black Eyed Peas on New Year's Day. It's a tradition of mutual respect for our culture, and mutual strength of our cause.

As current events indicate, the South is going to rise again!


Here's one I developed while working on a cookbook I never finished:


1 pound dried black eyed peas
5 cups water
1/2 pound bacon
1 can (15 oz) stewed tomatos
1 medium onion, chopped
1 jalapeno (or similar) pepper, diced
1 Tablespoon butter
3 shots Tabasco sauce

---- Seasoning Mix ---
1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
1 Tablespoon granulated garlic
1/4 teaspoon marjoram
1/4 teaspoon rosemary
1/2 teaspoon MSG (Accent flavor enhancer)
2 teaspoons Morton Nature's Seasonings
1 teaspoon sugar
1 bay leaf

Make up the seasoning mix in a small jar and set

Split hot pepper, remove all seeds, and dice.

Put butter and bacon in a 3 to 4 quart stock pot
over medium heat until bacon is very lightly
cooked (not brown). Add tomatos, pepper, and
onion. Cook for one minute. Add seasoning mix and
continue cooking for 4 minutes. Add water,
Tabasco, and peas. Bring mixture to a boil, and
then reduce heat to a very slow simmer. Cook
covered for about 1 1/2 hours until done.

With slight variation we make one called "Old Settlers Beans" they'll make you smell like an old settler!Old Settlers Beans
(For old settlers or people who just want to smell like one)

Brown and drain
½ lb hamburger
½ lb bacon
1 med onion diced

Then add
1/3 C brown sugar
½ C white sugar
1/4 C Ketchup
¼ C barbeque sauce (we like Sweet Baby Rays)
½ tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp mustard
½ tsp chili powder
1 can kidney beans –drained
1 can butter beans-drained
1 can pork and beans

Mix all ingredients together and bake for one hour at 350 or six hours in the crock pot

Optional ingredient: your favorite hot sauce to taste. Recommended is Tabasco or Justin Wilson Jalapeno. Either one will add flavor and a little fire. If used add a little stir thoroughly, wait, and taste. Too little you can add more, too much means I have to come help you eat them.


Looks good, dawg! That's a heck of a recipe.
