Claire, this soup ROCKS! Just ask Dh. I loved it, too. I can't believe the two of us ate that much soup! I ended up finishing this on the stovetop-seems my crockpot no longer works on low. It then finished in about 45 minutes. I used half chicken broth/half water and 1 cup of each of the split peas for half a recipe. Use 2 cups of yellow and 2 cups of green for the full recipe. I forgot to add the vinegar, but I don't think the soup needed it. Ten Stars!!
