Soak the dried peas overnight in water to cover. Drain and add fresh water (about 5 cups) along with hog jowl or ham hock. Cook slowly for 30 minutes in heavy pot with close fitting lid. Add onion and celery. Simmer for one hour. Add salt and pepper to taste and remaining spices. Cook slowly for another 30 minutes, or until peas are tender and the juice is thick. Remove bay leaf, taste for seasoning and serve. (I also like to add a little cayenne pepper to this one, along with a dash of accent).
