    Bev's Note:

    My family loves split-pea soup and this is the best recipe for it I have found! I like to substitute canned chicken broth for the water and add a bit more ham. This recipe comes from Gourmet Magazine,1995. Delicious!

      My soup turned out to be quite thin although the flavor was nice. I recommend starting with maybe 2 cups less water.

      A great recipe for this family favorite comfort food. The bacon added a nice smoky flavor. We like a thick pea soup, so I only used 2 qrts of water, and it was perfect. I added another bay leaf and some pepper for our taste preference. A keeper, for sure! Thanks for sharing, Bev.

      Bev, This soup is a family favourite in our household. It's not winter until you have split-pea soup. Like JanS I too add some chopped mint to give the soup a freshness. Sometimes, I add bacon bones to the soup instead of the bacon. All the meat falls off the bones. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
