Today I am going to show you how to make black eyed peas. Okay let's see what we need for today's video. First things first, black eyed peas. This is a pound which calls for this recipe so one pound of black eyed peas. You can get them at any grocery store. You can get them either soaked or unsoaked. You can also get them in cans. We want the hard dry for this. If you try making this with can blackeyed peas, it's not really gross unless you make black eyed pea soup basically. Not the way to do it. So just plain old dry black eye peas, four cups of just plain old normal water, the tap variety. I've got a one medium yellow sweet onion. I always use sweet onions unless I want to use red onions for some things. We need a whole one for this. Sweet onions are also good because they have a much mellower flavor than a regular old yellow onion. Your salt and pepper, I've got one cup of ham. You could also use diced up ham. I just happened to cook a ham a couple of days ago so I had some ham lying around so I just pulled some pieces off and will shred it for later. I've also got about three and half ounces of, this is called salt pork. It is a pretty easy to find product at least here in Texas and some other places it is a little harder to find; goes by different names too. What it is though is a really thick slab of uncut bacon so you could substitute bacon for this so you can substitute bacon for this essentially. But salt pork also carries a little more salt in it so it is going to be a little bit saltier; three and half ounces of salt pork which we are going to cut up. That is it for our ingredients. Let's see what equipment we are going to need for todays video.
