    breezermom's Note:

    This is a great soup to make in the months when nothing much is can find everything you need in your pantry...or easily found at the grocery store. This is a great recipe for that first bite of cold weather. I don't get much cold weather where I'm at, but this is great for when I do! Recipe is courtesy of the Loveless Cafe in Nashville, TN.

      In a large stockpot, combine the ham, bay leaves, and 3 quarts of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a low wimmer until the meat is tender, about 2 1/2 hours.

      Remove the ham from the stockpot and pick it into bite sized pieces. Return to the stockpot. Add the split peas, potatoes, and thyme to the stock. Cook until tender, about 20 minutes.
    3. 3
      In a large saute pan heat the olive oil on medium high. Saute the onions, carrots, garlic and celery. Add the butter and sugar. Cook the vegetables until carmelized, 12 to 15 minutes.

      Add the vegetables and potatoes to the split-pea pot. Simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Add the salt and pepper to taste and a splash of balsamic vinegar.

      This had great flavor, but was too thin for us. I would use maybe 2 qts of water instead of three to start and add more if needed later. The caramelized onions were a bit of extra work, but really added a nice flavor to the soup.

      We liked the veggies and my kids liked the potatoes. Nothing like a good soup on a cold winter day. Great filling soup after a day of running around.

      Made this as given, & we loved the veggie combo & everything else about it! The only slight change I made was to use lemon pepper instead of the indicated pepper! Very, very tasty & a nice keeper of a recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
