Balsamic Black Eyed Peas

This is from a friend of mine from work. Mike C loves balsamic vinegar and has turned us on to some good recipes. This is a good one for the summer months and goes great with some fresh home grown tomatoes.

1 Ham steak (we had some frozen pieces of a honey ham left over and used this)
1 can black eyed peas drained
1/2 onion chopped
1/2 bell pepper chopped
1/2 cup celery chopped
1 teaspoon honey or syrup- we used honey as we are on the honey for health kick right now.
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoon olive oil.

Cook ham steak until golden then chop in pieces
Place back in skillet and add honey,black eyed peas and olive oil. Heat for a few minutes
Add balsamic vinegar gently stir
remove from heat and add other ingredients and stir.
Serve cold.
