New Years traditions
« on: December 31, 2021, 12:10:13 PM »
Half my family is from the South: Mississippi and Tennessee.  Mom always said you have to eat black eyed peas for New Years to have good luck.   Got mine just now.  [emoji1303]

What is your New Year Tradition?

What do you eat them with?

Wings and ribs for us. Not-so-long-standing tradition, est. 2021.

Alabama and Mississippi hereÖ. Collard greens and black eye peas are insisted upon yearly by my wife.  Iíd rather have a foot long chili dog lolÖ. Going to work leftover prime rib into the menu Sunday for sure, undecided what itís going to be.

According to mom, you eat them with New Years dinner, whatever it was.  They donít taste particularly good, but mom insisted they must be eaten to have good luck.  Itís a Southern thing.

I see. So, do you spice them up, or is it plain-Jane?

I think mom used cocktail sauce to spice them up.  Iíll probably use Franks.

We also eat black eyed peas for New Years here in Texas. My mom makes them with roasted tomatoes and smoked sausage. Very tasty.

Blackeyed Peas, cabbage, and corn bread down in South Louisiana, and yes you gotta drop some crystal hot sauce on those peas!

We are cooking white beans and cast iron  crawfish cheddar cornbread for our new year feast!

@michaelmilitello
You need to use dry black eyed peas with any of the following for flavor: smoked ham hocks, smoked ham trim, fat back, smoked pork jowls, bacon or southern smoked sausage.

Give the dry beans a try, Iím sure youíll agree theyíre much better than canned.
Cheers and Happy New Year.

Our New year tradition is a black eyed pea dish called Hopping John. We use ham hocks and greens ( mustard greens, kale and / or collard). Basically itís like a bean soup which we serve over rice.

I grew up in the desert southwest. In my younger years weíd eat menudo (beef tripe) on NYD. Yup we were hung over college kids.

As I got older and settled down with my first wife her traditional NYD meal was tamales, carne asada tacos with pinto beans and Mexican rice. She was a gringo haha

I moved to North Florida 13 years ago, my second wifeís tradition is a straight up southern.
Pork, black eyed peas, mustard, turnip or collard greens, white rice, southern cornbread (no sugar) and sweet tea. (Iíll pass on the sweet tea)

Dessert a piece of warm buttered cornbread with Tupelo honey.
