Our family loves this soup. My mother used to make this, as did my DH's mother, using a similar recipe. We like to serve cornbread with this soup...yum!

As described, the soup was quite bland. I added: cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic, rosemary, and sage. Much better! I made it on the stove and it was ready after about 1 hour of simmering.
- 1 lb dried split peas
- 1 cup diced onion
- 1 1⁄2 cups diced carrots
- 1 cup diced celery
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried marjoram, crushed
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 1⁄2 lbs ham hocks

- Put all ingredients and 6 1/2 cups water in a 5 1/2-quart slow cooker.
- Cover and cook on high for 6 hours, or low for 12 hours until peas are very soft and fall apart.
- Remove ham.
- When cool enough to handle, cut meat off the bone, dice and return to soup.
