Cornbread and Cabbage for New Years

Post by HASBEEN »

As far as I`m concerned.....Black Eyed Peas, Cabbage, Cornbread, and Pork Chops are a tradition on New Years Day.

I believe that the peas are for good luck, the cabbage represents money, and the pork chops go way back to the civil war.....but either way it`s one of my favorite meals. :salute:

A little pepper sauce on the peas....and a little chili powder on the cabbage, ....butter on the cornbread, and cook the porkchops until the bones are "chewable".......

GAWD AMIGHTY !

Happy New Years !

If anyone knows the history or legends of this meal.....speak up.

Same same here at the Calabria house hold, except for the pork chop, had them yesterday.
I heard a news caster on channel 5 mention collard greens instead of cabbage this morning, must be a yankee thing.
I like all greens but, it has always been cabbage for on new years for us.

I must agree all greens are good, especially with pepper sauce.
Had to look up swamp cabbage on the net, and it looks great, anything you can fry/cook with onions and pork has got to be good.

I like cabbage and potatoes together, and there's all sorts of ways to make that happen. One of the easiest is the next time you're
makin' mashed potatoes, put some tender cabbage leaf in with the spuds when you start to boil them. It'll all cook up at the same time,
and it gives mashed taters a great flavor.

Then there's cabbage soup, cooked up with ham and tater chunks, and potato soup with cabbage leaf added for flavor. Either way, the cornbread is a given. As long as the Good Lord keeps me in corn meal, cabbage, beans, and taters don't any of y'all worry about ol' Olf. I'll be makin it just fine. :wink:

Smoked ham with an orange/brown sugar glaze, fresh collard greens par boiled then fried in the fat of smoked jowls and onions, and a big bowl of black eyed peas with diced onions and home grown chile peppers. Can't forget the honey corn bread, and iced tea to wash it all down. Pecan pie for dessert. Left overs tonight! :cheers:

Black eyed peas and a grilled ham slice were our day 1 table fare. Did the ham 4 minutes each side and it ate better than a steak.

Well in Florida i lean toward the Caribbean.
So we had Seafood Trifongo.
My wife it was shrimp in butter garlic sauce poured over the Trifongo. For me it the mix of shrimp octopus squid clams mussles in butter garlic sauce.

Just so you know Trifongo is
green plantains- kinda like a potato
yellow plantains little sweet
yuca. root like potato

cube them, fry them, mash them in a pestle and mortar with butter, garlic, pork crackling, a little olive oil and chicken broth. It kind a like stuffing then pour the shrimp and sauce over it.

Corn bread was a breakfast food try hot corn bread with butter and maple syrup. Greens got feed to the cattle sorry guys but thats were they belong.

I gotta admit it.....cuz you`re an airboat family member.....but I was reading your list of ingredients and trying to
relate them to any dish that I`ve ever had (gumbo, jambalaya, goulash etc) and I couldn`t quite get my ole redneck brain around it :scratch: ....when another airboat brother text`d me and I shared with him that you had me "stumped" on whether or not that even sounded good........

He promptly reminded me that I eat snappin turtles.......he`s right......and I decided that your trifonga stuff was probably as good as my cabbage. :toothy7:

But you`re missing out on the greens....

just sayin.

Happy New Years even if I can`t pronounce the menu.....generally speaking....Airboaters know how to eat well ! :salute:

hell yea pass the turtle.

Its like a good stuffing perfect for any good sauce and turtle gravy would go great on it. I like the parts under the green we never at the greens unless raw in a salad. I eat cabbage but you wont want to be in the same house with me if i do.

I been eaten a lot of different culture food try them all if you can some are great some are well

That's how I've always have heard it too. :thumbleft:

I was trapped at work New Years Eve & New Years Day, but I still managed to have some ham & blackeyed peas... no cabbage though, so I guess no $$$ for me in 2014. It's a good thing my bud's always got a little to spare. :dontknow:

I actually looked it up New Years Day after we ate pan fried taters, cornbread, and black eyed peas w/ham. Of course all mixed together in a big pile with hot sauce and a little ketchup. My favorite meal with black eyed peas or beans. It's good.

In the Civil War when Sherman scorched the south, they only destroyed food for human consumption. The northerners considered black eyed peas cattle fodder and didn't destroy them. You were lucky to have black eyed peas to eat cause there was nothing else.

Also, there is mention of it being a Jewish tradition on Rosh Hashana but I no nothing about that.

You can take blackeye peas dried and grind them and add beef broth then make in to a loaf cook in oven taste like meatloaf . The ones that couldn't afford meat did this in the 1800s after the civil war and my grandmother did this. It is hard to tell it was not meat
