    FCR Gal's Note:

    This is a combination of a couple of different recipes. My husband really likes potatoes in his split pea soup, so this is a variation of a traditional soup. Prep and cooking times do not include time for soaking peas. Also, cooking time DOES include time for building and releasing pressure in cooker.

      I use an electric pressure cooker. I use 3 ham shanks and add 3 Tablespoons of Thyme, to give it a bit more flavor. I prepare the split peas, then after that, everything goes in the pot, and I push "Start". It is great the first time I serve it, and FABULOUS when I serve leftovers.

      I followed this recipe exactly and at 20 minutes the soup was perfect and had excellent flavor. I added the potatoes and carrots and cooked an additional 10 minutes and the soup came out scorched. I was so disappointed as this was my first time using a pressure cooker. I will make again but I will reduce first cooking time by 10 minutes, so total cook time is 20 minutes.
