Winter Trees (going down the driveway)

New Years Day tradition at Jaci’s was not only the food, but an Open House that all kinds of people, new friends & old, gathered, came & went throughout the whole day.

Black Eyed Peas & Sauerkraut (for Good Luck)

1 Lb. Black Eyed Peas (soak overnight – rinse & drain)
8 C. Water – simmer & add
1/2 Package Bacon browned & crumbled
1 large Onion chopped
1 stalk Celery diced
4 cloves Garlic, minced
6 t. Chicken Broth
1/2 t. Salt
1/4 t. Pepper
Flour to thicken
Add some chopped Parsley at the end.

1-2 bags Sauerkraut
Small Pork Roast or other piece of pork, not too fatty
1 lg. Onion chopped
2 cloves Garlic


Sauerkraut: Slow cook sauerkraut, pork, onion & garlic adding a little water if needed.

Peas: Soak peas overnight; drain & rinse. In large pot add peas to water & simmer. In heavy skillet cook bacon until crisp; set aside to drain on paper towels. Cook onion, celery and garlic in bacon drippings until tender & add to peas along with crumbled bacon. Adjust seasonings to taste, cover & simmer until peas are tender. Serve with hot sauce on the side…
