Black-Eyed Pea Recipes for New Year’s Good Luck

Black-eyed peas signify good luck for the New Year.


In the Southern U.S., eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day is supposed to bring prosperity in the new year. The peas are cooked with a cut of pork for flavoring and salt (maybe bacon, maybe fatback, maybe hog jowl) and onion, and served with peppery vinegar and wilted greens — collard, turnip or mustard. 

I adore black-eyed peas, and have found them so good in so many dishes.

Let’s get lucky!
