    southern chef in louisiana's Note:

    This is a nice southern dish that you can use as a side dish or as main course. Smoked sausage or bacon can be used in place of the hamhocks if you so desire. Serve the beans and meat over rice. This is known as Southern Caviar and is eaten on New Year's Day. The black-eyed peas represent luck and the cabbage represents money. You can use fresh, frozen, or canned black-eyed peas in place of the dried beans, which shortens the cooking time for a quicker version of this recipe.

      This is pretty good, but makes a TON! It needs a little more spice, maybe more garlic. I added some broth in place of some of the water and made it in the crockpot instead of on the stove.

      My neighbor from North Carolina used to serve this every New Years Day, but she called it Black-eyed Peas and Hog Jaw, so I substituted hog jowls. It turned out just like I remembered....DELICIOUS!
