Soak peas overnight in lots of water. Drain, rinse and pick over for stones. Pour into a pot and cover with plenty of water. Salt water liberally. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook for 2 hours or so, until peas are tender with a bit of bite (al dente).
When peas are nearly done, fry up onion and bacon together with some salt and pepper (to taste) until everything is nicely browned. Spoon bacon and onions over a bowl of peas, mix in and enjoy.
