New Year Traditions

Carnival of the Recipes #175

New Year’s Day and New Year’s Eve Traditions

Cooking for New Year’s Day and New Year’s Eve tends to be a random affair punctuated by comfort food and easy to prepare meals to be eaten at parties and in front of the television.

One of the most well-known traditions is that Black-eyed peas are traditionally eaten on New Year’s Day, often with collard greens or mustard greens. The tradition indicates that the eating of black eyed peas will bring good luck and fortune.

With that in mind, we have a couple of Black Eyed Peas Recipes submitted by various members of the Carnival of the Recipes.

Famous Recipes presents Black-Eyed Peas Recipes posted at Famous Recipes.

And here is another Black Eyed Pea Recipe for good measure:

Black Eyed Peas with Ham

Eating black eyed peas on New Year’s Eve is supposed to bring you luck, or so says Southern tradition. Why leave it to chance when you can cook up a delicious pot of black eyed peas instead?

Cooking black eyed peas at a low simmer instead of a boil will keep the skins from bursting and give the dish a better appearance. Also add salt after cooking is complete as it can make the beans tough.

3 1/2 C canned or frozen (and thawed) black-eyed peas thawed
3 C chicken stock or canned low-salt broth
4 oz finely chopped ham
1 C onion, chopped
2 T balsamic or red wine vinegar
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp (more to taste) crushed red pepper
pepper to taste

Serves 6

Bring all ingredients to boil in heavy large saucepan. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until peas are tender, about 45 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
