SPLIT PEA AND HAM SOUP

A new recipe for me to try.  I love my soups and I really like the split pea soup in the can.

This being different,  I thought I would try it.  Cruising through my recipes which I collected in Ireland, I came across a soup recipe and with some slight variations I decided to make it.  

Soup as I see it, has to be the easiest thing in the world to make.  A few basic ingredients, water, salt, pepper and voila, you have the beginnings of a soup.  I don’t quite understand why or how people think that this is difficult.  Place everything into a pot,  let it simmer for a while and there you have it, soup.

RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

 2 Cups Split Peas

1 Onion, Chopped

1 Carrot, Peeled And Chopped

2 Celery Stalks, Chopped

10-12 Cups Water

Salt And Pepper To Taste

Cooked Ham, A Piece Finally Chopped In A Processor

PREPARATION

Soak split peas overnight. 

Chop all of your veggies.  I left the carrot in large pieces.

This is the ham I used.

Take and place a portion of the ham, in a food processor and finely mince.

It will look like this.

Add the rest of the ingredients plus the water.  Partially cover with a lid and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, simmer for approximately 1 -1 1/2 hours or until the peas are cooked.

You can shred or slice the whole ham for sandwiches, serve along side with a baked potato, nice crusty bread and salad.  Soup is a wonderful thing.

ENJOY!!!
