    Smokin' Joe of Wixom's Note:

    This was my first attempt at making pea soup, and because it was the first time, I went and checked out a multitude of other recipes to get ideas. This is the resultant recipe, and if I do say so myself, it's the best pea soup I've ever tasted. I know that sounds like boasting, but I really mean it. This recipe made an excellent pea soup. Try it, you'll like it!

      This is hot off the stove and delicious! I did have to sub turkey bacon and left out the marjoram since I was out. The bay leaves add a nice fresh flavor. I also added 2 lonely carrots that had overstayed their welcome in my fridge. Loved the texture and the smokey flavor from the bacon and ham. Thank You for sharing your recipe. * Made for PAC Spring 2010*

      This soup had the right texture, with whole peas and split. The potatoes added even more texture. It was just as good the second day as it was the first.
