DIRECTIONS

  • First, soak 1-pound whole or split peas in cold water overnight.
  • The peas will swell so make sure to more than cover them with water.
  • Rinse, drain, and pick over the peas before adding to soup pot along with ham bone with enough water to more than cover them.
  • Add the remaining ingredients.
  • Simmer covered for about 45 minutes on low to medium heat.
  • Check soup about every 15 minutes to make certain that it has enough water and also to stir to prevent burning.
  • Remove ham bone from pot.
  • Cut off the bone whatever meat still clings to it and add those pieces to the soup.
  • Serve.
