    Engrossed's Note:

    This is from "The Frugal Gourmet Celebrates Christmas". I made the entire "Swedish Winter Feast" for a past Christmas and it was wonderful! I'll post the other recipes next. The whole meal is: Swedish Corned Pork Roast, Swedish Sauerkraut, Swedish Green Split Peas with Bacon, Mashed Rutabaga, Turnip, and Potato & Sweet and Hot Mustard, served with Rye Bread. I expected not to like anything and ended up LOVING everything!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 lb bacon, chopped
    • 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and sliced
    • 1 lb split peas, washed and soaked in 6 cups water for 6 hours-overnight
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper
    • 4 tablespoons butter (1/2 cube)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Brown the bacon in a frying pan. Remove the bacon and set aside. Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the fat. Add onion and saute until tender.
    2. 2
      Drain peas and place in a 4 to 6 quart pot along with reserved bacon and sauteed onions. Add enough water to just cover the peas.
    3. 3
      Bring to a boil and simmer, covered, about 1 1/2 hours, or until the water is absorbed and the peas are thick. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking and add more water if necessary.
    4. 4
      Stir in salt and pepper to taste and the butter.

      Great bowl of "comfort food" on a dreary, wet day! Amazing how few ingredients can be so tasty! I usually only make split pea soup when I have leftover ham or some ham hocks, which isn't often. Now I can make it more often with bacon. I keep a large bag of pre-cooked, crumbled bacon in the freezer and that made this even easier. The only change I made was throwing in about 1/2 cup of diced carrots I needed to use. Great with homemade rye bread! Made for tag game at kittencalskitchen.com.

      This was delicious, i made it this morning, and when i came back to the store i lovely smell was waiting along with a great lunch. I will be freezing the rest, to use throughout winter. Another great thing about this, is that once made, it is a terrific base for expanding due to its simplicity. Also..pea soup is as good with dumplings as any stew is :)

      Pretty good. We salted the individual bowls. I was out of yellow, so used some vidalia and 2 shallots. I used the quick soak method: boil for 2 minutes, then cover and let sit for 1 hour. Then drain and proceed at step 2. I also added some chopped carrots and spinach for extra nutrition. I always blender my pea soup, so I added the bacon (what was left after kids sneaked most of it) at the end.
