HOPPIN' JOHN!

HOPPIN' JOHN!

This is a very old, Southern Tradition -- it's served on New Year's Day with rice, greens, and cornbread. This is my Nan's recipe.
I love it and it's got LOTS of protein and fibre!
Hope you'll enjoy it, too!

Ingredients

Hickory Smoked Ham Steak (4 oz = serving), 4 servings = 1 pound
Black-eyed peas (cowpeas), immature seeds, cooked, boiled, drained, without salt, 16. oz uncooked = 3 1/4 cooked
Green Onions (Scallions) - 1/4 cup chopped
Chciken Broth, 6 to 8 cups (48 to 64 fl oz.)

Directions

Soak beans overnight in plenty of water.
Drain and place peas in crockpot.
Chop 1/4 cup scallions (green onions) and add to peas.
Chop the ham steak and add to the pot.
Cover with 6 to 8 cups of Chicken Broth and cook on HIGH for about 4 hours,
then turn to LOW until you're ready to serve.
Stir peas once an hour.
Serves 8.
