Best yet Rustic Split Pea Soup

Best yet        Rustic Split Pea Soup created by Linajjac

I think this combination turned out especially well. The smoked turkey leg tastes just like ham. With croutons on top or some cornbread, it's a meal! Long simmering time allows the peas to get completely soft and break down so you don't have to puree them.

ingredients

directions

  • Put the smoked turkey leg in a six-quart pot. Oval pots are great, as turkey legs can be pretty long!
  • Add the split peas and the 2 quarts of water.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer.
  • After a while, there will be foam on top of the water. Skim it all off and discard.
  • Add the diced onion, carrot, sliced garlic, celery seed, salt and bay leaf.
  • Simmer for one hour, mostly covered.
  • Remove the bay leaf.
  • Remove the turkey leg and allow it to cool enough to handle while you simmer the soup for another fifteen minutes.
  • Remove skin, bones and tendon from turkey leg and dice the meat into bite sized pieces.
  • Add meat back to soup.
  • Add milk and half and half and heat to serving temperature.
  • Serve in big bowls topped with freshly ground pepper.

    Nice recipe. My husband loves split pea soup. I could give or take.. Always looking for different ones. I did decide not to add the milk. The cream was enough. He loved the garlic in it. It’s not something I normally add to pea soup. I add loads of hot sauce to my bowl. Pretty much the only way I can eat it LOL. Thanks’
