Rinse peas and pick over, removing any small stones
particles. Cover with cold water in a large pot, bring to a boil for
a minute, remove from heat cover and let sit for one hour.
In a large skillet, saute the salt pork to render
fat, add onion and
garlic and cook until onion is soft, about 5-6 minutes. Add the onion
mixture along with the ham bone and seasonings to the pot with the
peas. Add enough water to cover the ingredients and bring to a
simmer. Cover and cook for about 1- 1 1/2 hours or until black eyed
peas are tender but not mushy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve over hot cooked rice.
