  1. I found this recipe from you guys about 4 years ago, and have made it every year since, my peas are all the rave on New Year's day, thanks to you guys!

  2. I'm not much of a bean eater but I wanted to make this and it was very good. I added 2 smoked pork chops just to give it more meat. Very good recipe.
