We loved this soup! I used the ham bone from Easter but did everything else as written. I don't usually add potatoes to split pea soup but felt this was a nice addition. After simmering for 4 hours it was just perfect. Unlike some people, we don't like it so thick the spoon stands up in it by itself. The consistency was just right for us and we were all surprised it needed no more seasonings. It was perfect. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
Oh yumm, this is a lovely soup. I cooked my ham hock in my crock pot over night and then used the stock and striped the meat, and it was nice and tender, later I put it back in the pot once the soup was ready. I used mixed herbs with a bay leaf and I used white pepper but no salt. thank you for posting a very nice soup. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
Wonderful split pea soup recipe! We were afraid around hour three that it would be too soupy, so we left the lid off for the final hour of simmering, and it thickened up just fine.
Outstanding! Easy as chop, chop, chop. LOL I halved the recipe since it is just the two of us, which meant just 1 cup of chicken broth. I used a whole can, which was a 1 1/2 cups and then reduced the water by 1/2 cup. I also substituted a bit of thyme for the bay leaf (according to the zaar kitchen dictionary) and think it turned out great. I ADORE peas and am delighted to find such an easy and delicious soup. Thanks for posting, Donnie!
The perfect cold weather comfort food! We used some meaty bacon to make the soup with and served with crusty cornbread. Outstanding.
