    2      cups          Water
      3/4  cup           Dried black-eyed peas
    1      cup           Sliced okra
    1      small         Onion -- chopped (about 1/4
      1/2  teaspoon      Salt

      1/4  teaspoon      Red pepper sauce

 This makes a terrific main dish for two. Heat water and peas to boiling in
 2-quart saucepan. Boil uncovered 2 minutes; reduce heat. Add ham. Cover and
 simmer 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender (do
 not boil or peas will burst); drain.Cook okra, onion, salt, garlic and red
 pepper sauce in oil in saucepan about 5 minutes or until onion is softened.
 Stir in cilantro, tomato and peas. Heat until mixture is hot.
