EAT GREENS AND BLACKEYED PEAS FOR NEW YEARS
Eating GREENS and BLACK- EYED PEAS on New Years Eve or New Years Day is an old Southern tratition going back as far as the Civil War. When Sherman's troops were destroying and raiding crops, they ignored the Black-Eyed Peas, thereby elevating this humble, yet nourishing, legume to a major food source for the Confederates.
Today, the tradition has evolved to represent good luck and prosperity. The PEAS represent coins and the GREENS signify paper money. For a really good year, it is suggested that you eat 365 BLACKEYED PEAS for prosperity all year long.
And, don't forget the CORN BREAD! When served with the peas and greens, it represents GOLD! (Of course, we here at LoganBerry Heritage Farm enjoy our "gold" all year long!)
