Hoppin' John
Serves 4-6

1 cup dried field peas (cowpeas)
4 cups water
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 pound bacon, thick sliced, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 cup raw long grain rice
1 teaspoon salt
black pepper, freshly ground, to taste

Put the peas and water in a 2-quart saucepan and bring to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer and cook the peas, covered, until just barely
tender, about 1 hour 45 minutes. You will have to add additional
water during the cooking process. Watch that the peas do not dry
out. Drain the peas, reserving the water, and return them to the
kettle.

Saute the onion along with the bacon until the onion is clear.
Add to the pot along with the rice and 2 1/2 cups of the reserved
liquid. Add the seasonings. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce
heat and simmer for 15 minutes, covered. Allow the dish to rest
off the heat for 10 minutes before you lift the lid.
