DIRECTIONS

  • Place peas in a soup pot, cover with the cold water and soak overnight. Next morning add the chopped vegetables, ham bone and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then lower heat, cover and simmer gently for 3 to 4 hours. Stir mixture occasionally and add a little boiling water to keep soup at the right consistency. Remove the ham bone and add seasonings. Amount of salt will depend on the saltiness of ham bone.
  • Note: If soup is served at once, it will need no binding. If to be chilled and set aside for later, add 2 tablespoons each, well creamed butter and flour, smoothed together and stirred into the simmering soup 10 to 15 minutes before removing from heat.
