Nice flavor from the ham bone. I've never added beer to soup before but that was even good. It just had a little to much water in it for me. I used 8 cups of water and did not soak the peas. Maybe 6 cups would have been better for me. For the inquiry mind, 2 cups dried split peas is equal to a 16 ounce bag. Made for *Zaar Tag* game 2007

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pick over peas and soak overnight.
  2. Drain; add remaining ingredients, except seasonings.
  3. Simmer 3 to 4 hours or until soft. (note if using a crock pot you can cook this on high about 4 to 6 hours or on low 8 to 10 hours).
  4. Remove bone and celery, rub through a sieve and season. If soup is too thick add boiling water.
