Nowadays blackeyes are eaten every New Year’s Day to bring good luck for the coming year.


  • 1/2 lb dried black eyes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 small bell pepper, chopped
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Ham hocks or bacon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6-8 okra pods (optional)


Step 1

In a heavy sauce pan or Dutch oven put beans to boil. When beans have come to a boil, drain. Add enough water to cover again. Add the ham hock or bacon, onion, bell pepper, garlic, and salt and pepper, simmer until beans are almost tender. Add more liquid if needed as the cooking process continues. Fifteen minutes before beans are cooked, place 5 to 6 fresh okras on top of beans. Cover and simmer for another 15 to 20 minutes.

Have a happy, safe and prosperous New Year.
