Here is another favorite recipe from my Grandma. I always preferred the bean soup, but this one is really good too. It is definitely comfort food for a cold day.
- 1 pound dry green split peas
- 3 quarts water
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 carrot, diced
- 1 uncooked potato, diced
- 1 ham bone or 1/8 pound salt pork
- salt and pepper, to taste
Rinse and sort peas. Place all ingredients in large stock pot and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 3 hours. Season to taste. Add more water from time to time if necessary. Remove from heat, put through sieve. Reheat and serve.
