Split Pea Soup

Ingredients

For 1 Batch(es)

Recipe

  • 2 cups green split peas
  • 1 ham bone
  • 1 cups chopped onions
  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 1 large stalk celery, diced
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Split Pea Soup Directions

  1. Place peas in a large saucepan and add enough water to cover.
  2. Soak overnight and drain (or, to reduce cooking time, bring the peas and water to a boil, boil 2 to 3 minutes, then turn off the heat and cover. Let stand 1 hour, then drain).
  3. Add 2 quarts of water, the ham bone, onion, carrot, celery and garlic to the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for about 1½ hours, or until the peas are tender.
  4. Remove the bone from the soup, cut off the meat, dice and return to the soup.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
