    Sue Lau's Note:

    Great mixed bean soup with ham. You can sub a pound of any mixed beans along with the quarter pound of split peas in the recipe. It will all be fine. Stick to your ribs home cooking!

      Well, I didn't have any dried oregano (I ran out) and I had no idea what Northern bean were, so I used 2 1/5 cups of a dry bean mix which had kidney, lima, black, 3 kinds of split peas, and a bunch of others that I had no idea what they were! I added 1 tsp of chicken soup base. This is a fantastic soup! I loved it! My children liked it at first (ages 6 and 4) but once it started to cool down they found the texture too much. I am surprised they ate it anyway! The texture was a little thinner than a split ham and pea and oh, so flavourful! I added shredded cheddar cheese to the bowls at the table! What a yummy recipe! I will make this for pot lucks, and after being outside in the dead cold winter at -38C! LOL. Easy recipe to make fantastic taste! Thanks for posting it!
