Why I Love This Recipe

I have used this recipe for many years. It is so simple to make. Just needs stirring once it is prepared for cooking.


Ingredients You'll Need

16 oz. pkg (2 cups) dried split peas
2 lb. smoked ham shank
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. basil leaves
1 small onion, chopped
6 peppercorns (I used about 1/8 tsp. pepper)
2 quarts (8 cups) water
2 medium stalks of celery, sliced
1 med. carrot, sliced or chopped


Directions

In a large saucepan combine first 7 ingredients.


Simmer covered for 1 hour.


Stir in celery and carrots.


Continue simmering covered for 1/2 to 1 hour or until peas are tender and soup thickens.


Remove peppercorns (if you used them instead of ground pepper) and ham shank; cut meat from bone and return to soup.


Heat through.
