"This is a good way to use leftover ham, quite inexpensive, and VERY tasty. I hope that you enjoy it. Some people like to add carrots or other types of vegetables. Don't forget to serve with buttered bread toasted in the oven."

  1. In a medium pot, saute onions in oil. Add the split peas, ham bone, and enough water to cover ingredients; season with salt and pepper.
  2. Cover, and cook until there are no peas left, just a green liquid, 2 hours. While it is cooking, check to see if water has evaporated. You may need to add more water as the soup continues to cook.
  3. Once the soup is a green liquid remove from heat, and let stand so it will thicken. Once thickened you may need to heat through to serve.

very minimal recipe-its hard to rate the recipe itself when it requires adding so much extra. I always add carrots and celery (not potatoes). I also just pre-soak the peas and rinse them several...

i always soak my peas overnight,,2 reasons , they cook faster and the more you soak and keep changing the water the less gas you will have from the peas! great recipe!

I did the Slow Cooker version, as suggested in other reviews. I used 1 small onion chopped and 2 Bay Leaves. Also used a smoked ham hock because I didn't have leftover ham w/bone. Put it all in ...

This was FANTASTIC!! I substituted 2 cans of chicken broth for some of the water! DO THIS, it's GREAT! I also added some frozen diced carrots and sauteed an onion and added it, as well. SUPE...

Split pea soup is a staple in our home (at least once in any 2 week cycle, especially during the winter) and this is a good "core" recipe for it. I generally use dried beans (usually 1 lb.), chi...

Best pea soup I've eaten. Great base recipe and a few little additions makes it the best. When sauteing the onions add two diced ribs o' celery and four slice cloves o' garlic. I simmered the pe...

Very good soup! In place of 2/3 of the water, I used chicken broth. I also added diced carrots, a little crushed garlic and diced smoke-flavored SPAM. I didn't need to add any salt. The tast...
