An interesting twist on the traditional New Year's black-eyed peas.

You know I love food traditions and would like to embrace this one, too, but I heard they are supposed to symbolize money and that kind of naked greed offends my Protestant sensibilities.  Same with Chinese New Year amulets and lucky 8s because they look like two coins and Japanese waving cats that are supposed to attract big spenders.  I'm hoping there is a better rationale because some tasty hot pork and beans would be just the thing for a cold winter day.

You can eat 'em because they are good! And a good way to use leftover ham and ham bone from Christmas etc meals. Or to honor Rip Torn and Sissy Spacek who are related to the Torn who helped popularize the tradition and expand Black-eyed Pea sales from the initial roots.

Quote
University of Texas folklorist and dean of women Ruby Terrill Lomax said southerners believe “persons who ate black-eyed peas, a cheap and humble food, showed their humility and saved themselves from danger of wrath from the heavens because of any vanity they might have.”

Now that is more like it -- repent, repent!  Ok, next year.  This will be the second bit of Texas on the table after my uncle's pecans -- he has a little vanity ranch in the Panhandle.

Come to think of it, this is the only time of year I make ertesuppe with yellow peas because that is what Grandma did, usually on Christmas Eve and then reheated Christmas day when it is even better.  The concept is not entirely unrelated.

I don't know how far south you have to go for this tradition... But this is the first that I have ever heard of it...

Too late for this year. Perhaps black eyed peas next?  ;)

Precisely what I like about the holidays. I care for the consumer culture- but enjoy spending time with my family. I also like that most places close and people finally get to stop the rat-race for a few days...

Don't worry... there will be another 360 days where people are at their assigned stations in life ready to make your burger or sell you a pair of socks...
