Fresh Black-Eyed Peas Preparation

The day before, place peas in a bowl, add salt pork; add water to cover to depth of 1 inch. Let stand overnight. Next day, drain peas and salt pork and put both in a large pot with 8 cups water. Add onion, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Simmer 2 hours or until peas are tender. If necessary, add more water as peas cook to keep from burning. When ready to serve, stir in lemon rind. About 6-8 servings. A ham bone may be cooked with peas in place of the salt pork. ST.
