Well since it getting close to New Years figger yall gonna be needing a good recipe for Hoppin John.

This makes a bunch so you need to have some pals or palettes to share it with.

Bigwheel's World Famous Top Secret Hoppin John (Revised 12-31-07)

1 1/2-2 lbs dried black eyed peas
2 ham hocks
2 or 3 qts good chicken stock* (Try Better than Bullion from Kroger)
1 large chopped onion
1/2 chopped bell pepper
1 stalk chopped celery
2-4 garlic cloves
1 bay leaf
1 t. thyme
1-2 chopped fresh japs
1 cup Uncle Bens Quick cooking rice
2 T. Cooking Oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Brown up the hocks in the oil in a big stew pot. Add the onions, celery,
japs, bell pepper and sautee till the onions turn translucent. Fill the pot
about 2/3 full with chicken stock then add the bay leaf, thyme and garlic.
Simmer with a lid till the hocks are tender, about 2 hours. Add the peas and simmer till tender..about an hour maybe less. Remove and discard the Bay Leaf. Remove the, skin, chop then return meat to the pot. Add the rice and continue simmering till the rice gets done. Add water or chicken stock anywhere along way if it gets dry. Serve over..under and alongside unsweet cornbread. Have plenty of raw onyawn and Sirrachi sauce (Franks hotsauce works too) to pass on the side. Eat this and you have good luck all year.
