Split Pea Soup


  • 1 lb. dried split peas
  • 10 cup water
  • 3 smoked ham hocks or meaty ham bone (about 2 lbs.)
  • 2 cup chopped onions
  • 2 cup chopped celery
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper


In a Dutch oven combine all ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; partially cover and simmer 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. Remove ham hocks or bones; cut meat from bone into small cubes. Return to soup and taste to seasoning. Makes 16 cups.

Split Pea Soup

Because we can't always afford ham I simply cut up hot dogs and put them in for the last half hour. I add a teaspoon or two of liquid smoke to substitute for the missing smokey ham taste. (02/17/2010)

Split Pea Soup

Love split pea soup, but I always make mine cream of split pea soup. Before serving, drizzle in one or two tbsp of half and half, into each bowl and swirl w/ a knife to make it pretty. Serve. Let everyone stir their own soup to combine.
