   several bay leaves, and any leftover root vegetables
   for 45 mins in 6 cups of water.  Add the black-eyed
   peas and simmer about 30 mins.  Chop the onion,
   celery, and the bell pepper.  Remove all the celery
   leaves from the top of the bunch, rinse well, and chop
   them too.  Saute the onion in a little oil. Add the
   celery, with leaves, and after a few mins., the bell
   pepper. Sprinkle generous amounts of the spices in the
   pan, and saute another minute. Remove the carrot,
   vegetable pieces, and the bay leaves from the stock.
   Add the onion mixture and chopped tomatoes to the
   stock, and stir well, adding more water if necessary.
   Let simmer about 10 mins. Chop the okra and stir in
   with the frozen corn; simmer another 10 mins. Adjust
   the spices to taste, and serve, ideally with cornbread.
