    Rita~'s Note:

    The onions, carrots, celery, potatoes and garlic are sauteed first to enliven the sugars in them. This comfort soup gets a wonderful smokey flavor from your choice of ham bone or shank or smoked turkey wings. It's swirled with sherry. Topped with bacon bits and croutons.

      In a large pot heat oil add onions, celery, carrots, potatoes and carrot saute for 5 minutes add garlic, oregano, bay leaf, salt, pepper & ham bone stir 1 minute. Add peas and cover with enough water to completely submerge all ingredients by a couple inches.
    2. 2
      Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 3-4 hours, until thickened be sure to stir throughout the cooking. The longer you cook it the thicker it gets.

      This soup is absolutely delicious! I haven't made split pea soup in a long time but had a ham bone and some ham broth that I didn't want to go to waste. I'm sure I've never put potatoes in my split pea soup before but this sounded interesting. It turned out wonderful!! I have to say that I did not use the oregano, bay leaf or sherry.....personal preference.......but I followed everything else as written. This is definitely a keeper in my book! Thanks for sharing!

      So good! Threw everything into the crockpot and then processed with a food processor - loved it!

      I've made this soup a couple times now. I learned the hard way not to use a glazed or sweetened ham. The sweetness didn't mesh well with what I expected from a good split pea soup. This is truly a good split pea soup. The less aggressively you cut/eat from the shank, the more ham you have to melt into your soup. Total Yum!
