I have never made Hoppin John, but I have made this dish many times, and it is delicious. You can use canned peas or cook up some black eye peas in your own kitchen. Either way, make these, you won't be sorry! Personally, I love the tang of the vinegar with the peas and bacon.
|Black-eyed Peas with Red Wine Vinegar and Bacon.|
Savory Black-Eyed Peas
adapted from: an article found in a magazine somewhere...
2 cans OR 3 cups cooked black-eyed peas* - do not drain
1/3 c red wine vinegar
4 slices bacon, diced and fried until golden brown, drain off most of the fat
1 c diced jowl bacon, fried until golden, drain off most of the fat
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan, simmer for 30-45 minutes or until flavors have blended to your satisfaction. Drain and serve OR you may boil the remaining liquid in the pan to reduce and make a tangy reduction.
* if using cooked peas instead of canned, add 1/2 c water
