Hoppin John


  • 1 pound dried black-eyed peas (cow peas)
  • 1/2 pound salt pork
  • 1 quart water
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups raw long-grain rice
  • 3 cups hot water

  • Method:

  • Pick over the black-eyed peas to remove dirt and stones.
  • Soak them in water to cover at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Fry the salt pork in a large heavy casserole to render the fat.
  • When the salt pork is crisp, add the black-eyed peas and the quart of water, the thyme, salt, and pepper,
  • cover, and cook over low heat for 40 minutes.
  • Adjust the seasonings and continue to cook until the peas are tender.
  • Add the rice, cover with the 3 cups hot water, and simmer over low heat until all of the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Serve hot.
  • On New Years Day, in some families, a dime is placed in the Hoppin John to ensure special good luck throughout the year for the person who gets it. However, the thought of cracking a tooth makes me think that this may not be the best idea. Try it if you wish.
  • Makes 4 to 6 servings.
