I have long been a lover of Split Pea Soup, so when I passed by the beans the other day and saw a bag of split peas I decided to try my hand at making it. The directions on the bag seemed pretty simple, but I didn’t want all those ingredients, so I kept it simple.
In my crockpot, I added some onions, ham, bag of split peas, 1 can chicken broth, three cans of water, garlic salt, sea salt and pepper. Oh and a couple of bay leaves. I would have added fresh garlic, but I was fresh out.
I cooked it on low for about 10 hours. The peas were still a little firm, so I put it on high for about an hour.
My house, and even my garage smelled heavenly. I used my ladle and smashed them up right before I served. The results were YUM. This is going to be such a tasty lunch tomorrow. And baby will defintiely like it too.
