Split Pea Soup

Cold winter days are just made for split pea soup!!! If you have a leftover ham during the holidays, this is a great use for it.

SPLIT PEA SOUP

1 ham bone or 2 ham hocks
16 oz. split green peas (1 bag – rinsed)
4 c. chicken broth
1 medium onion, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 bay leave

Split pea soup is really, really easy. Put all these ingredients in a large soup pot and simmer for 2 to 3 hours. The meat will fall off the bone! At the end of simmering, take out the ham bone and pull apart the meat and stir it back into the soup. You really don’t need a lot of seasoning if you use a ham bone – ask the butcher at the grocery store if he has one to sell you.
