Fresh Taste Table: Hoppin’ John Updated

Hoppin’ John Updated – A Traditional Southern New Year’s Dish

Download Printable Version

Hoppin’ John is a traditional Southern dish eaten on New Year’s Day. Most recipes are made with leftover ham or bacon from holiday feasting. Some say the sound of dried beans hitting one another evokes the noise of coins clinking together and will bring prosperity or luck. Adding greens is said to draw green (money). Other people insist it is a good hangover cure. It is also a nice warming stew for a cold January day. Whatever your reason, enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups black eyed peas (if canned, remember to drain, if dried, remember to soak)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil or butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 head garlic, minced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 5 cups broth
  • 2 bunches kale, torn into bite sized pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon smoked paprika, or to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons white vinegar
  • Cooked rice

PREPARATION

  1. Sauté onion and celery in oil over medium heat in a large pot.
  2. When it starts to change color, add in garlic and cook 1 more minute.
  3. Add broth and bring to a boil.
  4. Add in beans and paprika and reduce heat to low. Cook 20 minutes.
  5. Add kale and cook an additional 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Toss with vinegar and rice just before serving.

Schenectady Greenmarket Donates Over 3,000 Meals

Before our last market of the year on Sunday, Schenectady Greenmarket would like to pause and thank our vendors and customers for another successful year. As a community-run and community-oriented organization, we like to give back to the community as much as possible. This year, we’re happy to announce the end of another bountiful growing season and the generous donation by our vendors of over 3700 lbs. of fresh, local and nutritious food to City Mission of Schenectady.

Since the beginning of Schenectady Greenmarket in 2008, farm vendors have donated excess produce to help fight food insecurity in Schenectady. Starting in 2014, the market began working with its partners MVP Health Care, the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, City Mission of Schenectady and the Schenectady Ambassadors to bring unsold food to the City Mission. The partnership has been fruitful, with over 11,800 lbs. of food or roughly 9800 meals donated in the last two years. This year alone, from June through October, the market donated over 3100 meals to its neighbors in need.

“The market is once again amazed by the support of our vendors and the success of the donation program,” said Jennifer Jennings, Market Manager for Schenectady Greenmarket. “We have been able to provide thousands of meals to our neighbors in downtown Schenectady in a short period of time. This important milestone would not be possible without the generosity of our vendors and the partnerships we have built with MVP Health Care, City Mission, the Ambassadors and the Regional Food Bank.”

What People Are Saying

City Mission of Schenectady

“City Mission of Schenectady relies heavily upon the generosity of its partners to achieve our goal of feeding the hungry in the community.  Our partnership with the Schenectady Greenmarket has been instrumental in our efforts to provide fresh fruits and vegetables of high quality to the community,” said Chris Silipigno, Associate Executive Director of Business and Donor Development.  “We are so grateful for the Schenectady Greenmarket’s willingness to come together to fight food insecurity… and build community in the process.”

MVP Health Care

“Schenectady Greenmarket plays a significant role in combating food insecurity in Schenectady, and the community has benefited greatly as a result of the collaboration of farmers, vendors and community organizations working together to get nutritious food to those in need.  We’re proud to be part of an effort that helps provide thousands of meals annually to feed people who might not otherwise have access to fresh and healthy food.  The program is perfectly aligned with our vision of creating the healthiest communities possible,” said Denise Gonick, MVP Health Care President and CEO, “and we look forward to continuing our support.”

Regional Food Bank

“The Regional Food Bank would like to thank the Schenectady Greenmarket, along with its farmers and vendors, for partnering with the Food Bank and the City Mission of Schenectady to recover fresh and nutritious food at the market each week,” said Khali Coulter, Food Industry Relations Coordinator for the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York. “This year alone, their generosity has made it possible to provide nearly 3,100 meals to those in need.”

Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara

Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara said, “A gem in our community, the Schenectady Greenmarket taps into the area’s diverse agricultural landscape to connect people with the fresh, homegrown, local foods and products they want, adding something unique and special to our beautiful downtown area. The market is also a great community partner that gives back, and this year’s donation of meals to the City Mission will once again make a big difference for our families.”
