new years day tradition

Postby bobrun4172 » Thu Jan 01, 2015 7:49 am

happy new year!.......and now for the second best part of new year.....the FOOD. i was kinda wondering what traditions others have here being we are all spread out. in pa its pork roast, and saurkraut. i sear up a pork roast, and slow cook with home made kraut in apple juice. along with mashed potatoes.
i recently made a rum cake for dessert. i used that rumtopf i put in a earlier post. i took a rum cake recipe online, and baked it. then poked a bunch of holes in it using a scewer. i then made a glaze of the rumtopf, and brushed that on it. i did that 3 times. well like they say if its good....its gone. definatley a keeper!
anyway i was wondering what everyone else has?

Blackeye peas, collard greens, smoked ham and corn bread. About as Southern as it gets.

Peas for luck, greens for money, ham and corn bread cause they taste so good with the peas and greens. :rkn:

Just put the ham in the smoker a few minutes ago. The peas have been soaking overnight.

I like ocra too. Fried that is. ?.not boiled....too dang slimy...oh ......seen your post on the cannon. That sounds like fun, but I would probably end up in trouble :D ....thanks for sharing the tradition :8)

It's all in how you fix them. I even have yankee friends who come back for seconds of my collard greens. :shock: :D

I make some delicious pickled okra. Yum! The vinegar/brine seems to be a slime solvent. :D

Boiled peanuts are what the gods on Olympus used to eat back in the day! :rkn:

We do Corned beef and cabbage (Brussels sprouts for us) for new years day. My wife does if every year for some reason. it's tradition on her side of the family. I know it has some significant reason.
Fresh crab and slow cooked prim rib for X-Mas dinner... I love living in Nor*Cal!

Cheers
