1/3 Photos of Country Style Smoked Sausage, Ham and Split Pea Soup
This is the soup I make after I have baked my Celebration Spiced Baked Ham With Orange and Marmalade Glaze. This soup uses split peas, but you can just as easily use yellow or red split lentils instead (same weight and cooking instructions). Many old style recipes require that the split peas are soaked overnight before starting recipes but this is not normally necessary nowadays. However, be sure to read the packet instructions carefully. If the split peas are soaked overnight their cooking time can be reduced to around 40 minutes. This recipe does not require overnight soaking however. If you have made my Celebration Spiced Baked Ham With Orange and Marmalade Glaze, you will not need to add the vegetables listed here - unless you want extra vegetables, as the stock will already contain them. The cooking time will then depend on the split peas or lentils only. This serves 4 hungry people in large, deep soup bowls as a main course soup dish. It is wonderful with crusty bread rolls or baguette. This also makes a fabulous soup to take on a picnic in the Autumn or Winter, just what the doctor ordered!
