Split Pea Soup

If you have left over ham bone from the holidays here is one of my husband's favorite recipes!!

  • 3 quarts water
  • 16 oz. package of split peas
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 1 package fresh, sliced mushrooms
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 bay leaf for seasoning
  • 1 ham bone
Mix all together in pot. Bring to boil uncovered. After boiling uncovered, simmer for 2 hours uncovered until meat falls off bone. Remove bay leaf and bone- ENJOY!!!!
We did this in a crock pot this year so it could simmer while we were not home. It was perfect!!
