Down South, we've been cookin' up pots of Hoppin' John ever since I can remember. Why it's called that, I'm not sure. I've been told it goes back to the days of slavery, and I've heard that the word "hoppings" once meant feasts. I make my Hoppin' John by cooking up a pot of black eye peas and adding onions, spices and Jalapeno peppers for extra punch and then serve it over pipin' hot rice. It's a must at every picnic, and family gathering and, of course, an absolute necessity to eat at New Year's for good luck. Now, with my dee-licous blend, you can have some whenever you want. "It's my Hoppin' John!" Already cooked heat and eat. Try all of Sylvia's soul-satisfying selections! Stop by your local market and pick up the fixin's for a true southern meal.
