Never heard about the red undies. We eat black-eyed peas and greens for good luck on New Year's Day.

Are you laughing because you do that, too? Or because you never heard of that custom before?

The stores around here sell out of black-eyed peas towards New Year's. You have to buy them early! I bought mine at the beginning of the week, and there were only a couple of bags left on the shelf!

hi murph,hope i never offended you i didnt realize the custom there in the usa,black eyed pea"s are thought to bring prosperity,especially served with collard greens and other green variations,which are thought to bring wealth and money,so please accept my sincere apologies.

You all are cracking me up!

No offense whatsoever, Zoltan!

Black-eyed peas and greens on New Year's are a Southern tradition. There are plenty of places in the US where people don't do that.

I would gladly share my recipe, though it isn't anything special. I basically soak the peas overnight, then drain them and start over with some kind of seasoned meat. Generally I use the ham left over from Christmas day, and maybe cut up an onion, use a little garlic, and boil everything until the peas are tender. But I did have another recipe I used for a while there, more of a black-eyed pea salad with a vinaigrette dressing, because my husband doesn't really like them and I was trying to find something he'd enjoy more. I believe I used the canned peas (drained) for that.

You can also use bacon or left-over ham to season the greens, or you can boil them in broth (maybe use chicken bouillon).

I also make cornbread (no sugar; we call sweet cornbread "Yankee cornbread" around here, and that's not a good thing).

Southern Living magazine generally has recipes for traditional stuff like this, often with a new twist to make it a little more sophisticated. You might try their web site and see what you find there.

And there's a hand my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o thine,
And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught,
