How to make it

  • Soak split peas in cold water for several hours or overnight. Place bones, drained peas, water, celery, carrot and onion in a large pan. Bring to boil and simmer, covered, for 2 hours, or until the peas are tender.
  • Add leek and potato; cook for another 30 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
  • Remove ham bones from pan, chop the meat and return it to pan; discard bones.
  • Cool mixture slightly; push through a sieve. Return to pan and heat through. TOp with sliced sausage and a sprig of parsley. Serve with rye bread.
  • NOTE: If a chunkier soup is preferred, the sieving can be omitted.

    Sounds like my pea soup. I like to add thyme, and a little lemon juice at the end. Now I'm craving pea soup. Thanks for the recipe.-Lori
