Black-eyed Peas

1/4 Pound Salt Pork
1 1/2 Pounds Fresh Black-Eyed Peas
Cold Water
1 Teaspoon Bacon Grease
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Salt -- or to taste
1 Onion -- cut in quarters
1/4 Hot Peppers -- optional

Cut slits in washed and dried salt pork.

In medium sized saucepan cover meat with about a quart of cold water. Boil, covered, until meat is tender and water has evaporated down to about a cupful. Add another quart of cold water to the meat.

Add peas, bacon grease, sugar, onion and hot pepper. Bring to a boil, cover again and lower fire to medium low.

When peas have become slightly tender - about 30 minutes - add salt.

Continue cooking until tender and tasty, usually about 20 minutes.
