Living in the South, I make blackeyed peas or Hopping John every New Year' s. Your version sounds great.

Don't think I'd care for that corn bread but soup seems good.

Looks lovely.

Quick question though - if not using granulated onion, what fresh ingredient would you recommend instead? More chopped onion? Garlic?

If you put a pot of beans with twice the water on the counter before going to bed, then drain and add new water next day, cook until done- you don't have to depend on canned beans. Pretty simple. My daughter loves her pressure cooker for beans. I like my way. Whatever works, but you know there's nothing added, and they are freshly cooked.
