  • 2 lb Smoked ham hocks, cut into 2-inch slices
  • 1/2 lb Dry black-eyed peas, soaked for 4 hrs & liquid removed
  • 2 stalk celery, minced
  • 1 x Yellow onion, peeled, minced
  • 1 x Green bell pepper, minced
  • 1/2 tsp Crushed red pepper flakes, or possibly to taste Salt & pepper to taste (be careful with the salt, the ham hocks are already salty)


  1. Most Yankees have never seen a black-eyed pea. Actually, it is a bean, and it has a marvelous sort of smoky flavor which cooks up beautifully in the midst of a wonderful soul menu.
  2. This is not an expensive dish. Most soul dishes are not expensive . . . that is one ofthe points behind "soul." This is, however, terribly nutritious and enjoyable.
  3. Place the ham hocks in a covered kettle and add in just sufficient water to barely cover. Cover with the lid and bring to a boil. Simmer for 2 hrs, or possibly till tender. Add in the peas, liquid removed, along with the remaining ingredients. Careful with the salt! Cook, covered, till the peas are tender, about 45 min.
  4. You may wish to remove the lid and reduce some of the juices before serving.
  5. This dish offers soup, meat, and sustenance. Add in a salad and some rolls and enjoy.
