1 teaspoon Salt
1 pound Cut up ham or ham bone
1 large Onion, sliced
1 can (16 oz. size) Tomatoes, cut up, with liquid
1 clove Garlic, mashed

Wash and soak the beans overnight with 1 tsp salt.

Drain and cover with 2 quarts of water. Add cut up ham or ham bone. Boil slowly 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

Add onion, cut in slices, tomatoes, cut up and undrained, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste.

Simmer several more hours until very thick.

This is excellent with a hot, crusty French bread.

I always make Hoppin' John on  New Year's Day. If you eat it on that day, you're
 supposed to have good luck for the year.

Black Eyed Peas soaked and cooked
Fry and crumple a pound of bacon and add to peas
Fry an onion and add to above

This year I cheated and used canned Black Eyed Peas! Naughty! shades

That`s a tradition here, too. Only difference we have collard greens with our blackeyed peas.
The collards represent cash, according to Bill.  Afro
