Black Eyed Pea Soup

1 large onion, chopped
2 quarts of chicken stock
2 pounds of black eyed peas

Soak the black eyed peas in cold water for 6-8 hours and drain.
Cut the ham into large chunks and combine all of the ingredients in a large pot.
Add enough water to barely cover the ingredients.

Cover the pot and simmer for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
Remove the lid and simmer for 1 hour.

Can be served right away, but the longer it sits the better it gets.
