Category: Soups

 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Dried black-eyed peas
  • 2 c Boiling water
  • 4 c Cold water
  • 3/4 ts Salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 6 sl Bacon
  • Lemon slices
  • 1/2 c Cream; whipped (optional)
  • Ground nutmeg (optional)


Wash peas. Pour boiling water over them and soak for 6 hours or overnight.
Add the cold water, salt, pepper, and 1 slice bacon. Bring to a boil,
cover, and simmer for 2 hours. Mash peas to a smooth paste (a blender is
fine for this), and heat with the liquid to the boiling point. Cook 5
slices of bacon until crisp, and crumble in the bottom of soup bowls. Add a
very thin slice of lemon to each bowl. Fill bowls with soup, float a
spoonful of whipped cream on top of each and sprinkle with nutmeg. Yield: 6
to 8 servings.
