- 10Remove bay leaf and discard.
- 11Adjust seasonings to taste.
- 12If you desire a smooth soup, then puree' in batches in a food processor or blender.
- 13Or eat the soup without puree'ing.
- 14If soup is too thick, add more water to your desired consistency.
- 15Beef broth or chicken broth may be added, just reduce the water by the amounts used.
- 16Smoked ham hocks are excellent to use instead of a ham bone.
- 17If there is not enough ham on the ham bone, then add additional ham of your choice.
- 18You may also use about 1/4 teaspoon of Liquid Hickory Smoke, to get a smokey flavor.
- 19You may also use whole peas, but it will take a bit longer to cook these peas so that they are tender.
