    I have been making this recipe for years! It is in my 1972 BC cookbook. I love it for it's simplicity and homey goodness. It also works well in the slow cooker.

    i can't believe i have never reviewed this recipe. this is pretty much my Mother's go to split pea soup. She used german salami instead of the ham, a sprinkle of celery salt and no carrots.

    Pure, old-fashioned comfort food. This is the recipe I grew up on in the 1950's. (The carrots weren't in the 1950 Betty Crocker recipe, but mom always added them. I still have that book!) Thanks for a great wintery night dinner!

My name is Jill. When I discovered Recipezaar, and that you can 'sort' recipes by 'rating' it really got my attention. I am building a collection of five star (rated by 100 or more users on this site) :) recipes. This is quite an improvement over frozen entrees from the microwave for lunch!!! I tell everyone I can about this site, so they can reap the benefits too!
