Tradition says this recipe is a must for New Year's Day because it will bring you luck, money and health in the coming year.
2 cans (16 oz) black-eyed peas
2 cups rice, cooked
2 cans (16 oz) chopped collard greens
6 slices hog jowl cut in small pieces
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a medium pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes or so. Serve with cornbread. If you can't find sliced hog jowl, you can use a small piece of salt pork or ham hock.
