10 good luck new year foods - Black-eyed peas
If you are new to Hoppin' John, start by following the instructions on a package of dried Black-Eyed Peas. When the peas are done, cook a portion of white rice (or a kind you like) according to your family size. When the rice is done, about 20-30 minutes, combine the two items into a bowl. It can be a small cereal bowl for individuals, or in a pot or bowl large enough to hold it all. And you are done. Whether its Hoppin' John, or Skippin' Jenny, that could have been covered in the above description.
With that said, be sure that you have your cornbread to round out the treat.
