Rinse and sort peas according to package directions. Place peas in a large Dutch oven; cover with cold water 2 inches above peas, and let soak 6-8 hours. Drain peas, and rinse thoroughly.
Bring salt pork and 1 qt. water to a boil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat; reuce heat to medium-low, and simmer 30 minutes. Add peas, onion, next 2 ingredients, water to cover, and if desired, jalapeno pepper. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce heat, and cook, stirring occasionally, 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours or until peas are tender and liquid thickens slightly. (Uncover after 1 hour to allow liquid to evaporate, if necessary.) Season with salt and pepper to taste.
