This was my first time making split pea soup. It was a little messy processing the soup in the blender, but it was worth it to get that smooth texture. (If you're blending it you can coarsely chop your vegetables.) I only used one ham hock, and that provided enough flavor, but not much meat which was fine with us. Instead of buying a big can of broth I used 6 cups of water and a tablespoon of chicken bouillon.
