Grandma’s Old Fashioned Green Split Pea Soup

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.
