    Split Pea Soup

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    Just made this today 10/10/03 and it is to die for!!!!!
    8 cups water
    1 pound dried split peas (about 2-1/4 cups)
    1 to 2 lb smoked ham
    1 med onion
    1 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    2 or 3 carrots chopped
    2 or 3 stalks celery chopped

    Heat water and peas to boiling. Boil for 2 minutes, then remove from heat
    and cover. Let sit for 1 hour.

    Add ham (whole), onion, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until peas are
    tender, about 1 hour.

    Remove ham and trim meat from bone. (I usually use 1 lb boneless smoked ham)
    Cut ham to 1/2 inch pieces. Stir ham, carrots, and celery into soup. Cover
    and simmer until veggies are tender, about 45 minutes.
