- Once peas are soaked, add ham bone, onion, salt, pepper and marjoram. Cover, bring to boil and then simmer for 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.
- Remove bone; cut off meat, dice and return meat to soup. Add celery, carrots and potatoes. Cook slowly, uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.

"Wonderful soup as is. However, I have made a few changes to "kick it up, a notch". I have added a bay leaf, a couple cloves of garlic, and a pinch of thyme. Instead of the ham bone, I used a ham hock ..." See moreand used up some left over ham cubes I had in the freezer. I also lightly sauteed the onions with some garlic in a little bit of EVOO before adding the Ham Hock. I also did half chicken stock and half water... sure makes a differance in flavor. I also find 2 cups of dried peas, instead of 2 1/2 is more than enough as this soup tends to end up a tad too thick. "
"I used this recipe as a base for my own creation. This was simply the best soup I have ever made. I did boil the ham hock in chicken broth instead of water for 1 hour ahead of time. Then I added the..." See more split peas and pepper (I omitted the salt). I added about 2 cups of diced carrots, 2 cups of celery and 2 cups of potatoes. I added 2 garlic cloves, some parsley flakes, thyme, onion powder (since I left the onions out), 2 bay leaves and the taste was amazing! I was going to blend the split peas before I added the other stuff, but they lost form and made the soup a lot thicker. I hope I can replicate this soup, it was off the hook! "
"This recipe is great and can be tweeked to your own preference. I threw all the ingredients into a crock pot, didn't rinse the peas and threw the ham bone in with all the meat on. I cooked it on high ..." See morefor several hours. I probably added more liquid than the recipe called for but then I just threw in a whole bag of dried split peas..so thought I would need more liquid. THe soup was REALLY thick, and so I add more chicken broth to every serving. I also used Thyme instead of marjoram as i didn't have that in the cupboard. I will definately use this recipe everytime I have a ham bone."
