    faith58's Note:

    This is simplicity at its best. Served with cornbread and brownies, you get pure comfort food. I add extra basil and if you don't like split pea soup, substitute dried navy beans for split peas. Soak the navy beans overnight and increase first cook time to 2 hours and then stir in celery and carrots and continue to cook as directed. Also I add extra vegetables. Enjoy!

      The name says it all: Simple and Good Ham & Split Pea Soup. Didn't use the carrot or the peppercorns because they were unavailable. But the soup was still very, very good. This one is a keeper.

      Jan this is wonderful split pea soup! I couldnt find ham shanks at the store so I bought ham hocks, they worked great. When the soup was done cooking I pureed it in the blender so DH would not see the veges. I did use matchstick carrots, 3 stalks of celery and did not add the salt. Thank you sweetie, I have enjoyed this so much and will have to double the recipe next time!
