You may also fry up some Polish sausage to add to this New Year's Black-Eyed Pea Recipe. It's delicious!

For the black-eyed peas, I generally let them soak overnight. If pressed for time, you can cover them with water, bring to a boil, and let soak for 1 hour.

Serves: 6
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour 5 minutes


Ingredients:

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 (16-ounce) package dried black-eyed peas, washed
  • 1 (12-ounce) can Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup water

Directions:

  1. In a large saucepan, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon, crumble and set aside to use as topping for peas.
  2. Add onion, celery, green pepper and mushrooms to the bacon drippings. Sprinkle with the garlic and onion powder. Cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Add peas, diced tomatoes and green chilies, salt, chili powder, pepper and water. Cook, covered, over medium heat for 1 hours or until peas are tender. Add additional water of necessary.
  4. Sprinkle the top of this New Year's Black-Eyed Pea Recipe with the crumbled bacon. Serve with crackers or cornbread.

Yo-Zuri Hardcore NOI-Z Wakebait and Crank Series

FLW Pro Circuit angler Spencer Shuffield tells Florida Sportsman executive editor Jeff Weakley that there are two new offerings from Yo-Zuri that take full casting distance advantage of the company's patented Magnetic Weight Transfer system. One of those new baits is the Hardcore NOI-Z wakebait, a hinged lure that uses a hard-knocking rattle, a rear prop and a feathered treble hook to draw ferocious strikes. The other is the redesigned Hardcore Crank 2+, 3+, and 4+ series, which can be cast a country mile, bounced off of cover, and retrieved silently to lure high-pressured bass into striking.
