Description:  Split Pea soup is a hardy soup. For most of us, it tastes best in cool or cold weather. But, don't hesitate to give it a try in warmer weather, too.

  • 3 quarts water

  • 1 ham bone

  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced

  • 1 stalk celery, chopped

  • 1 large onion, peeled and chopped

  • milk, if needed

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • homemade croutons

How to Make Split Pea Soup:

  • In a large soup pot, place cold water, peas, ham bone, and vegetables.

  • Simmer for three hours, or until mixture is thick. 

  • Remove ham bone.

  • Force through a coarse sieve.

  • Season with salt and pepper.

  • If soup is too thick, dilute with a little milk.

  • Serve to with homemade croutons.
