In the morning drain off the water and discard. Place black-eyed peas in 8 quart pot. Add the 4 cups water to the pot . Stir in ham and diced onions, and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place tomatoes in a blender or food processor, and blend until the tomatoes are liquefied. Add tomatoes to pot. Bring all ingredients to boil. Cover the pot, and simmer on low heat for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until the peas are tender. If using a ham hock remove and add the meat from the ham hock to the pot of beans.

Place the bacon and vegetable oil into a large pot over medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until bacon is crisp. Add cabbage, onion, sugar, salt, pepper, water and crushed bouillon cubes to the pot; cook and stir the cabbage as it cooks. Cook until tender but still crisp. Cook about 10 - 15 minutes on medium heat.
