Ingredients:  
3 cups fresh shelled white acre peas
3 cups of water
1 smoked ham hock
½ cup minced onion
2 cloves garlic minced
1 Tbsp bacon grease or olive oil
½ tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp ground black pepper
Fresh parsley for garnish

Directions:
Directions:
1. Add bacon grease or olive oil to a medium-size saucepan over medium-low heat. Once the pan is hot, add the onion and sauté for about 6-7 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for another minute. Watch the garlic carefully to make sure it doesn’t burn.

2. Add the ham hock, the peas, water, kosher salt, and pepper. Add more water if necessary to cover the peas by at least an inch and turn the heat up until the peas come to a boil.

3. Reduce the heat to low and let the peas simmer for about 20-25 minutes. Taste a few to check for seasoning and to see if they are done. If not continue cooking for a few more minutes. The fresher the peas are, and the smaller they are, the less time they will need to cook.

This is my favorite vegetable dish. It has been a mainstay on the MCCULLOUGH dinner table for 80 years. One of my favorite ways to eat them is mix them with rice and stewed tomatoes. DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT!!!!!!
