    Cookin'withGas's Note:

    My mom used to make split pea soup every fall/winter, but no one else liked it so she and I were the only ones who ate it...Recently I thought of those younger days again and found myself wishing I knew how she'd made it...After a little research and alot of online recipe comparisons, I think I have created a recipe I like and one that I can even do in the slow cooker/crockpot! Serve with hot rolls or biscuits...

    Directions:

    1. 1
      The night before, add 4 cups cold water to slow cooker/crockpot; stir in the dried green split peas; do NOT turn on the slow cooker/crockpot.
    2. 2
      Cover and let soak overnight; In the morning drain and rinsed the split peas; Return the rinsed peas to the slow cooker/crockpot.
    3. 3
      Add the chicken bouillon cubes, the onion, the garlic and the pepper; do NOT stir.
    4. 4
      Place the ham hock on top of everything, in the middle of the slow cooker/crockpot; Slowly pour in the 6 cups of water; do NOT stir.
    5. 5
      Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours; resist the urge to open the lid for a peek; do NOT stir.
    6. 6
      When the cooktime is over, remove the ham hock and remove the meat from it; Chop the meat finely and return to the soup.

      This was a very tasty recipe. Like reviewer Chef#583312, was going to add potatoes, but forgot. Didn't matter to my sisters, they gobbled this up at dinner (my sister had 2 helpings!). Thanks, Cookin'withGas, for posting this recipe. Will have again!
