MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 25, 2014

sounds like a soup I want to come home to already to be served. Since I work 8 hrs a day and not able to go home at the end of 5 hours. Can I put this in the crock for 8-9 hrs?? I give it a 4 star only because I haven't made it yet but sounds good

We LOVE this soup! I make it exactly like the recipe. On high, without pre-soaking the peas (remember: yellow split peas do not need to be pre-soaked, they just need to be washed first)

This was really easy and very good, but I made some changes. I added a ham bone for flavor and then some cut up ham. I did not want to put this in my crock pot on high-- it just didn't sound like a good idea for soup!-- so I cooked this on low for 9 hours which was perfect. I added 1/2 tsp. of thyme and 1/4 tsp. rubbed sage, and used vegetable broth instead of water for more flavor. I decided not to add the milk at the end and instead added another cup of water. When I make this again, I'll just add an additional cup of broth from the beginning. My husband and toddler loved it!
