Hopping John soup for luck in the new year, from Kalyn's Kitchen

Hopping John soup (with black eyed peas, ham and collards), from Kalyn's Kitchen.

It can't hurt to start the new year with some good luck. In the southern United States, folks eat Hopping John -- a Creole stew of black-eyed peas, ham and collard greens -- on January 1. According to tradition, the peas represent coins and the collard greens represent dollar bills. Kalyn of Kalyn's Kitchen created this Hopping John soup for a soup party (what a fun way to begin the new year!). It might bring you wealth, and it definitely will bring you good health. Happy New Year!

Get the recipe for Hopping John soup from Kalyn's Kitchen.

Sounds absolutely heart-warming. Lining up a number of soups for a winter soup-making fest and this will be one of them.
