Bonnie Walker and John Griffin of SavorSA appeared on the Monday edition of "Great Day SA" to share stories of New Year's traditions.
They spoke with guest host Paul Mireles about how various cultures serve greens, such as cabbage or kale, as a symbol of wealth (cabbage, in fact, was once a slang term for money), while black-eyed peas and carrot coins are also considered a harbinger of prosperity because of their monetary shape.
Recipes for ringing in the new year include Jalapeño Black-eyed Peas With Ham Hocks
, Carrot Coins With Honey and Dill
