DIRECTIONS

  • Put the peas into a strainer and rinse until the water coming out of the bottom is clear. Pick over to ensure that there are no twigs or small rocks in there.
  • Heat olive oil in a stock pot or dutch oven. Saute the onion and celery until soft, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the stock and water to the pot and bring to a boil. It's OK if the ratio isn't precise since cartons of stock seem to come in different sizes these days. Just make sure you have 6 cups of liquid in total.
  • Add ham bone, bay leaves, rosemary, and thyme. Partially cover and simmer for 1/2 hour.
  • Add carrots and diced ham (if you are using it). Partially cover and simmer for another 1/2 hour, or until peas are soft.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
