DIRECTIONS

  • Wash peas and soak them in water overnight, for at least 8 hours.
  • If using salted pork, cut in thick slices and boil in water for 10 minutes before dicing. In a large heavy-bottomed pot, fry bacon or pork until it starts to brown.
  • Add onion and celery and cook until soft.
  • Add chicken broth, drained peas, carrots, bay leaf, savory, and parsley. Bring to a boil. Let simmer for two to three hours, until peas are tender. Stir soup from time to time to prevent it from sticking.
  • Season with salt and pepper at the end.
  • Serve in bowls with parsley and heavy bread on the side.
