Black-eyed Peas and Ham Hocks

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Black-eyed peas simmered with ham hocks and seasoning for a true Southern craving!

INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):


  • Rinse dried peas thoroughly, sorting any tiny pebbles or other debris.
  • In a large stockpot, bring 3 cups of water to a boil with black-eyed peas, ham hocks, salt, pepper, and bay leaf. Reduce to a simmer and cook, uncovered, 1 1/2 hours, or until peas and ham hocks are tender. If ham hocks require further cooking, simmer in water in a separate pot until meat is easily pulled from the bone.
  • Cool ham hocks and remove all meat from the bone. Stir ham into the peas, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed, and serve.
