Reviews for Split Pea Soup with Cubed Ham
"I had prepared this recipe when it was firstfeatured in Taste of Home and I found it really good-it was a recipe which I definitely will use if I make Split Pea Soup!I did make adjustments on this recipe to suit my tastes: I used 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil I also used 3/4 tsp. Italian seasoning.The soup came out tasting delicious!Thank you, Holly Dow, for this recipe!DELowenstein"
"Canned chicken broth has 860 mg of sodium per cup aleady, too much even before the extra salt this recipe adds. Use low sodium chicken broth, still 450 mg a cup, and don't add any salt. Plus the ham has even more salt."
"This recipe was very bland. I looked up another recipe from this site and added spices and it was so much better. I will be using the other recipe going forward."
"Next time I make this recipe, I will omit added salt; the ham makes it salty enough. Otherwise, great combination of spices!"
