Crowder Peas and Hot Water Corn Bread


Crowder Peas Recipe

1 smoked turkey wing
5 cups water
2 cups fresh Crowder peas
1 small onion, chopped
½ teaspoon red ground pepper
2 tablespoons bacon fat or vegetable oil
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons vinegar

In a medium pot, combine water, turkey, onion, and hot pepper. Cover pot and cook until turkey is almost done. Add peas, oil, salt, and pepper. Add more water as needed. Cook covered over high heat until peas start to boil. Reduce heat; add bacon fat and vinegar. Cook peas 15 to 20 minutes or until tender. Serve hot.

Meal Idea: Serve with Hot Water Corn Bread


Hot Water Corn Bread Recipe
2 cups corn meal, self-raising
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 egg
1 tablespoon sugar, optional
1 ½ cups hot water
1 cup vegetable oil for frying

In a medium bowl, combine corn meal, flour, egg, sugar, and hot water. Heat oil in skillet to 375 degrees. Place about 1 heaping tablespoon of corn meal mixture for each bread patty in skillet. Slightly spread to form flat circles. Fry over medium heat until light brown on both sides. Cool patties on paper towels. Yield: 8 to 10 patties.

Quick Recipe Note: Make sure the water is hot and not lukewarm-it makes better bread.
