Split Pea and Ham Soup
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 2 hours 35 min.
Makes10 servings (2-3/4 quarts)
I didn't use the oil because I couldn't understand what it adds to the party I used a clove of garlic added a bay leaf and a little bit of oregano delicious
Used up my salty ham, yay
If you really want to add extra flavor, use the ham bone too. A little celery salt helps with flavor. Also, if you like a less mushy pea, use the whole peas or a combination of split and whole.

I followed the directions exactly and found the peas way overcooked. I ended up adding two cups of water and a teaspoon of ham base for flavor. Next time I will cook peas less and add veggies earlier!
absolutely wonderful. great soup for the St. Pat's potluck
Really good! Followed the recipe almost exactly and couldn't stop eating it!
We liked this soup a lot. Thanks for sharing it! I used the ingredients listed here but the method shown in the video on this page. For example, "sweating" the carrots, celery and onions to soften them up a bit, then adding the dried split peas and other ingredients directly into that pot. I also substituted chicken stock for water to get more flavor. The split peas really don't need to simmer for two hours .... 35-45 minutes is more than enough time.
I only cooked the peas for 30 minutes, then added the next eight for another 30 minutes.
