Ham and Green Split Pea Soup- carrots, onions, celery potatoes and garlic for soup.Ah, this is my favorite soup. After Christmas dinner, I take that ham bone with still a lot of meat on it, pop it into a large freezer bag, and into the freezer it goes! I always make my Ham & Green Split Pea Soup for New Year's eve & day meals. It is such a good hearty soup with some dinner rolls or hot bread.


Ham and Green Split Pea Soup Herbs for soup.

  • any leftover ham

  • 3 large carrots, minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
