How to make Hoppin johns and collard greens - Hoppin Johns and Collards

Tradition is not just about how we do things in the south, it’s about the history of our families. It makes us feel close to those that are no longer with us, bonded to those that stand beside us every day, and hopeful about those that are still to come. Tradition is a string of love that weaves together the past, present, and future, connecting all of us.

No matter your budget, sharing tradition is one of the most important things you can give those who you love, not only during the holidays, but throughout the year. So, I thought it appropriate for my first blog post for Sow True Seed to be a traditional southern meal served on New Year’s Day. May your New Year be filled with joy, peace, love, prosperity…and lots of luck.
