      cg, I've tried to make split pea soup before, but never got it quite right. This one was perfect! Billy was very skeptical, he's not a pea soup fan at all, but he LOVED this one! He had 2 bowls, and said to be sure I make it again. It was so easy to make! You know my saying.."It's all in the prep." Well it is. Get that stuff done and you ready to go. I also added a ham bone to simmer with everything else, since I only had a small ham steak, then removed the bone, but added the meat from it back to the pot. Didn't have ham stock, so I used Better than Bouillon chicken soup base. I used the 2 1/2 qts of water, and started with 2 tbsp of the base, knowing that I could add more later if needed. I ended up adding about 3 more tsp of the soup base to the soup, and seasoned to taste with salt and pepper. So I simmered it for the first 30 minutes, added the potatoes, and gave it about 1 hour 15 minutes more. Just perfect, and served it with crusty warm bread. Thanks cg--this is another winner!

      Excellent. Good texture and consistancy. I used turkey ham, but it was fine. We will be making this again. Cheers!

      I thought this would be a great way to use up my ham and ham bone from Easter. I had both yellow and green split peas on hand but the majority wanted green. The recipe made a great hearty split pea soup which I have been enjoying for a few days. I will be making this again but with yellow split peas!Thanks for posting.
