Black-Eyed Peas with Slab Bacon and Tasso

Black-eyed peas are a traditional New Year’s Day dish (they’re supposed to bring good health and good luck), along with smothered cabbage (to ensure wealth) and pork roast and cornbread.

Abel and Jo’s black-eyed peas are creamy and wonderfully peppery, and the two meats make a good contrast in taste – the slab bacon with the peas is delicious, and then the bites of tasso and peas are a completely different taste treat.

(Abel was the eighth child born to the Prudhomme family.  He and his wife, Jo, shared this recipe in The Prudhomme Family Cookbook.)
