Made this last night in my extra large crock pot. If you follow the recipe exactly it makes a huge amount of soup so be sure to use a big crock pot. Husband loved it! He had three big helpings. Son (9 years old) just thought it was ok but did eat it. I diced the carrots up really small and he didn't even notice them, he hates carrots. When I make this again I will only use 8 cups of water instead of the 10 the recipe calls for. We thought the soup was a little thin and we prefer a thicker version of Split Pea Soup. Otherwise it was very yummy and I will definitely make it again! Diced ham would be good in this soup too!



I made this with 16 oz cubed ham instead of sausage. EXCELLENT! I did make a few other changes after reading reviews though. I used 8 cups of chicken broth instead of the 10 cups of water. I also used fresh minced garlic instead of the garlic powder. I only added about half of the peas in the beginning...I was getting nervous around 3 hours because it didn't seem to be cooking at all! But then about a half hour later it was really going and I added the rest of the peas, and it went for a total of about 5 hours on high. So it came out with a nice thick pea mush with some whole pieces too. I was a little nervous about the lack of a lot of "seasonings and spices" here...but trust the recipe and use a good quality pea and meat and the flavors will really come out where they are supposed to! Hubby says best pea soup yet!



This was really good. The only changes I made were: 2cans of chicken broth, instead of the bouillon cubes, therefore only 7 cups of water. I also added 1/2 lb or cubed ham and used Cajun sausage to add flavor. SDamare, Slidell,LA
