Black-Eyed Peas With Smoked Pork Jowls



Black-eyed pea soup with corn bread.

I’d never had smoked pork jowl until I’d ordered what I thought was pork hocks from Third Way Farm, a local Maryland farm, and got jowl instead. I didn’t realize my mistake in ordering until I unpacked the box of mixed pork cuts to put in my freezer.

Upon re-reading the list of goods the farmer had emailed me I saw that all along the item was indeed pork jowl. Note to self; next time wear reading glasses when ordering. Not to worry I thought, let’s just give this jowl a try.
