    KEA's Note:

    This is my Mom's famous split pea soup recipe that I adapted to the pressure cooker. It really cuts the cooking time-from several hours to about 30 min. Great for cold winter suppers.

      If everyone knew how easy and great tasting this soup is, they'd be making it all the time! I liked the fact it didn't make too much too! I did add some garlic and used half chicken broth and water! Thanks for posting this one.

      I just purchased a pressure cooker and this was the first recipe I made. It was delicious! My husband totally enjoyed it also. I think I will like making food in my pressure cooker, just like my mother used to.

      A winner, but don't ignore step 2. I head pea soup all over as my pressure cooker was too small for all the ingredients. 2 tsp of salt was tad bit much. I'll never buy canned split pea soup again. So easy, so good!
