A close friend passed on this recipe. It's been in her family for years, and now it's a favorite in ours, too (my husband and I have an 11-year-old son). In fact, we've turned having Black-Eyed Pea Chowder into a New Year's tradition at our house For a large crowds, I've sometimes doubled the recipe. Everyone that I've made it for has enjoyed it. I even have a friend who doesn't like black-eyed peas but loves the chowder.
