This recipe originated with the master chef of our family—my father-in-law. It freezes so well that frequently I'll cook up a double batch of soup. My husband, our two sons (14 and 12) and I live on 70 acres outside of town. I enjoy crafts. But I'm every bit as happy plowing fields or baling hay!

Absolutely love this soup. Made it many, many times. I have friends who do not like cabbage and they love this soup. It is a true winner.

This is a good soup. However, I always use yellow split peas, never green ones as we don't like the taste.

MY REVIEW

Oh, my goodness! This is just incredible. I can't stop eating it!! I didn't have allspice so I improvised by using substitute spices (1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, 1/8 tsp cloves). I also used packaged cole slaw cabbage, which worked fine, but think I'll cut my own next time in order to have larger pieces. Awesome!

I love split pea soup of any description. In place of the ham I used sliced kielbasa and it was wonderful. This tastes wonderfully "cooked from scratch".
