Wilted Winter Greens & Black-Eyed Peas

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/wilted_winter_greens_black_eyed_peas.html

From EatingWell:  November/December 1994

For this sauté, soft, smooth black-eyed peas make a mellow match for the assertive flavors of dark leafy greens. Country ham or Italian prosciutto makes a nice change from the salt pork or ham hocks that greens are traditionally cooked with.

10 servings | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 2 hours (plus overnight soaking)

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Soak peas overnight in cold water. (Alternatively, place peas in a large saucepan, cover with water and bring to a simmer. Cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand for 1 hour.) Drain the peas, rinse well and place in a large saucepan. Add water to cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 45 minutes. Add salt. Let sit, covered, for 1/2 hour, then drain and rinse.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add ham (or prosciutto) and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Add the greens and cook, stirring constantly, until wilted, 5 to 10 minutes, adding more water if necessary. Add the reserved black-eyed peas and heat through.
  3. Season with vinegar, salt and pepper and serve.
