Cookery Rhymes: A Seasonable Song

grey pease

Piping hot, smoking hot.
What I’ve got
You have not.
Hot gray pease, hot, hot, hot;
Hot gray pease, hot.


1 pound grey peas
1 pound smoked bacon
1 large onion

Soak the peas in water over night. Next day cook until soft in enough water, (add salt). Cook the bacon until near crisp. Cool and Chop.
Dice the onion and cook in the bacon grease. Drain off most of the grease add to pot with peas. Before serving top with chopped bacon, if any survives the wait to meal time.
