Curried Ham & Split Pea Soup Recipe

This soup is great for stocking in the freezer and the curry gives it a warmer flavor, which goes so nicely with the salty ham. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

"Loved how easy this recipe was, but I cooked it too long in the crockpot so it got really thick. I just added more beef broth until it reached my desired consistency. The whole family enjoyed it, even the toddler! Not spicy at all!"
