It seems that for a lot of people, 2016 wasn't a great year. As 2018 approaches, it seems as if we need all the help we can get. Eat Black Eyed Peas on New Years Day for luck. Please. Just do it, just in case. We're counting on you. It may mean nothing or it may be the key to success in the new year, but either way, eating Black Eyed Peas couldn't hurt! I was searching the New York Times for Martha Rose Shulman's excellent vegetarian Black Eyed Peas with Collard Greens recipe when I stumbled upon all of these great looking Black Eyed Pea recipes, especially this one by David Tanis. Our peas were harvested late autumn and are about as fresh as a dried pea can be. We have a limited amount and once they're gone, that's it for the season. As of this writing, we've reached our cutoff for Christmas delivery via ground shipping, but you can still order Rancho Gordo Super Lucky 2018 Black Eyed Peas and they'll make it to you in time for New Years Day.
