Hoppin' John Recipe


Hoppin' John

Make this early in the day to allow peas to soften

1 cup dried black-eyed peas

4 cups of boiling water

3 medium onions diced coarsely

1/2 pound each salt pork and spicy sausage, cut into cubes

1 cup mixed rice and barley

Salt, pepper and hot cayenne sauce to taste

1/2 cup molasses (optional)

1 cup stewed tomatoes (optional)

Pour boiling water over the peas, let sit for 1 hour. Place on the stove on low heat or in the crock-pot/slow-cooker. Throw in onions, meat, rice/barley, tomatoes and molasses. Simmer until the beans have gone so soft they are falling apart. Add hot sauce, salt, and pepper in the last half hour before serving.
