Black Eyed Peas For New Years: History?

bbqboy | Dec 26, 2007 05:52 AM

How did Black eyed peas come about as a New Year's tradition in the South? Is it a tradition still widely followed?
Are there variations, or one true recipe?

Is it a tradition across all classes and races?

How about other parts of the country?
Same dish or unknown where you are?

I'd love to hear your stories. Thanks.
