Well, this is my first time making Split Pea Soup. Not as good as my grandmothers but it's my best! LOL I added 1-1/2 tsp garlic, omitted celery (for lack of having some), 1 cup cooked ham and about two slices cooked chopped bacon. I removed the Bay Leaf about 30 minutes in because Im not a big fan of the flavour. THANKS for the great recipe!
