This soup is simply delicious and was enjoyed by our family. I used a ham bone that had a lot of meat left on it. Soon, I'll cook another ham so that I can made this recipe again. Thanks for posting.

I have used a recipe very similar to this one for many years (ham bone version). It is a staple during Winter. Served with a side salad and crusty bread ... absolute heaven! The only difference is we did not use celery and finely diced the onion and carrot - smoother consistency.

This is the same yellow split pea soup I have been making for years. If I don't have ham, I often use the broth from a boiled, pickled cottage roll (and some of the meat). An excellent soup!!!

This was so good ... the only thing I did was put in too big of a pinch of thyme (my fault). I tasted it and felt it could use just a tad more but once it sat it was a tad too much. Also, I couldn't get whole yellow peas so used split peas. This didn't affect it in any way but reduced the cooking time significantly and there was no need to pre-soak the peas (all in all, a plus-plus). Edited to add: This soup also freezes well.
