Black eyed Peas

It may just be a Southern tradition, but we always eat black eyed peas and greens on New Year’s day.   The peas are for good luck =and the greens are for money.   I’m not usually a superstitious person, but I will take whatever good luck I can find.




1 large green bell pepper, diced

1 large onion, chopped

1 large can stewed tomatoes

1 lb dry black-eyed peas

1 lb frozen okra

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp paprika

1 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp Braggs Amino Acids



Rinse black-eyed peas well.  Put all ingredients slow cooker and cover with 6 cups water. Cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or on high for 4 hours.

    We always have to black eyed peas too…along with corn bread, sauerkraut, and pork. It’s part southern and part German…all from my mom’s side of the family.

    Me too. It’s just not New Years without black eyed peas 😊
