This sounds about right

A story that you might hear a lot as New Years is approaching. A story that should be retold and reminded to us every year

Why do Southerns eat Black Eye Peas on New Years Day?
What Is In Your Kitchen ?

The story of the Southern tradition of eating black-eyed peas as the first meal on New Year's Day is generally believed to date back the winter of 1864 - 1865 during the later part of the of Southern Independence.

When Union General William T. Sherman led his invading troops on their destructive march through Georgia, the fields of black-eyed peas were largely left untouched because they were deemed fit only for animals.

The Union foragers took everything, plunder the land, and left what they could not take burning or in shambles.
But one thing did remain the lonely peas and good Ol Southern salted pork.

As a result, the humble yet nourishing black-eyed pea saved surviving Southerners - mainly women, children and the disabled veterans of the Confederate army - from mass starvation and were thereafter regarded as a symbol of good luck.

The peas are said to represent good fortune. Certainly the starving Southern families and soldier were fortunate to have those meager supplies.

According to the tradition and folklore, the peas are served with several other dishes that symbolically represent good fortune, wealth and prosperity in the coming year. Some folks still traditionally cook the black-eyed peas with a silver dime in the pot as a symbol of good fortune.

Greens represent wealth and paper money. Any greens will do, but in the South the most popular are collards, mustard greens, turnip greens, and boiled cabbage.

Cornbread - a regular staple mean among Southerners in absence of wheat - symbolizes gold and is very good for soaking up the juice from the greens on the plate.
You should always have a box on hand in your kitchen anyway. Good for dinner and in the morning with syrup

Pork symbolizes bountiful prosperity and the progressing into the year ahead. Ham and hog jowls are typical with the New Year meal, though sometimes bacon will work too.

Stewed tomatoes are often eaten with this meal as well. They represent health and wealth.

So reflect on those stories when you sit down at your family table and enjoy this humble uniquely Southern meal every New Years Day. Be thankful of what this year did give you and better days that are coming ahead of you

It was what your Southern Kinfolk DID and reflected upon every year.

Time is coming to get the Southern Smell a cooking

In all things keep true to your Southern Roots
