When I have leftover ham in the fridge, I always like to make this soup. Just throw the ingredients in the slow cooker, turn it on and dinner is done. —Pamela Chambers, West Columbia, South Carolina

MY REVIEW

"I made this for the very first time. Was good but, my soup looked more brown than green. Don't know what I did wrong. Help ??"

"Perfect thick and richly satisfying meal on a cold cold winter night. Only problem I had with this was it made the whole house smell delicious all day and it takes like 8-10 hours to make so you can't have it anytime soon! I used canned chicken broth-- each can was 14.5 ounces and we were looking for 32 ounces total, oops. So I used 3 cans and just added another 1/4 of the package of split peas. Turned out great.

Also I didn't have any thyme, so I substituted Basil. still yum!!"

"Made this soup on this cold night; used leftover holiday spiral ham and we loved it. Nice touch with the rosemary; I used 1-3/4 cups of water and 1/4 cup white wine. Thank you for this great recipe. Will be making this recipe again!"

"This soup was easy and fantastic! My husband, who is a split pea fanatic said it was the best split pea soup he has ever had. I did add two potatoes cubed. Very hearty! Will definitely make again!"
