For a different spin on traditional split pea soup, try this recipe. The flavor is peppery rather than smoky, and the corned beef is an unexpected, tasty change of pace. -Barbara Link, Alta Loma, California

"WOW great flavor, when I was making this recipe and I just got it boiling the whole house smelled like sage and I thought Oh No this isn't going to be good but after letting simmer for 2 hours it turned out fine, actually really good there isn't an over powering sage flavor like the smell I got from cooking it, it has lost of flavor and isn't watery I will make this again, thanks for the recipe."

"This is a good tasting hearty soup. I always add Italian seasonings and garlic to my soups. The ony thing differnt I'll do next time, and it's only because it's a family preference, is strain the soup and smooth it through the food processor. The taste is great, though!"

"I have made this 3 times recently using the cubed ham option! Freezes wonderfully. I freeze in individual servings to take to work for lunch! As the recipe says, cube potatoes as they need to be larger than the chopped onions & celery as we all know, they cook quicker. As soon as the peas are tender, the soup is done. It's incredible!"

"I made this soup almost as indicated. I doubled the recipe. For the eight cups of water and five teaspoons chicken bouillon, I had used 64 oz. of chicken broth. For the 1 teaspoon dried marjoram, I used thyme. I did not use the one teaspoon of poultry seasoning. I did everything else as the recipe called for. I cooked this in a two gallon cast iron kettle.

The soup is fantastic. I had the pastor over for lunch - this soup and grilled cheese sandwiches and he asked for the recipe. He loves split pea soup. Another friend is getting a quart. I have three quarts left over and they are now in the freezer. I am very pleased with how things turned out."
