    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    After a holiday dinner, when I have served a ham, I retain the ham bone to make this soup. It has become part of the whole holiday tradition, and is true comfort food.

    1. 1
      In a large soup pot, combine water, peas, broth, ham bone, marjoram, pepper, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
    2. 2
      Remove ham bone and let cool. When you are able to handle it, cut meat off the bone and dice. Discard bone (or donate to the family dog). Add diced ham to soup pot.
    3. 3
      Stir in carrots, celery, and onion. Return to a boil; reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes more, until vegetables are tender. Discard bay leaf.

      Wonderfully flavored soup that I let slow simmer for most of the day. We really prefer the peas broken down into a thick soup and I used a smoked ham hock. This made a great old fashioned pea soup that was much enjoyed. Thanks for posting Jackie :D

      Oh, yeah ~ Definitely a winning recipe! I don't usually take this much time to prepare a soup, but with recipes like this one, it's certainly worth all the effort! For this one, I had to badger the meat man for just the right ham bone, but now that I have this recipe on hand, I'll be even better prepared the next time I find myself with such a bone left over from a holiday dinner! Certainly worth scheduling on the menu! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      This is pretty much how I make my split pea soup except........I add one can of evaporated milk at the end of the cooking and just heat through. Try it, you will like it.
