I serve this traditionally on New Year's Day with a pork roast, but we also enjoy it anytime we want a pot of peas! It is also delicious served over rice.

I tried this recipe for the first time yesterday for my New Year's Day dinner. I could only give it three stars--and I am being generous here--because the peas were not done, even after continued cooking for two extra hours. By the time the peas were done, the tomatoes and other ingredients were overcooked. Shouldn't the peas be soaked for at least three hours or so beforehand? I definitely think this recipe is a winner and a keeper. And I am going to make it again...after I find out/figure out how to fully cook the peas. When that happens, I will give it the full five-star rating that it so rightfully deserves.

Just made this for New Year's Day and it's great. I made a couple of changes - I left out the fresh jalapeno and instead added a can of Original Rotel (still used 1 can diced tomatoes, too), and I added some chopped up ham. Cut up and then cooked the bacon in the microwave, less mess than a skillet. I put it in at 11:30pm and it cooked on low for 12 hours, the beans are the perfect tenderness.

This made a great New Year's Day dish, but would work well any time of year. I added the "rest of the bacon" and used a large can of diced tomatoes. The taste is great! Thanks for the recipe!
