Tasty Tuesday recipe: Green split pea soup

This Green Split Pea Soup recipe is best done after you've saved the ham bone of a spiral ham, or any bone-in ham.

  • Start by boiling the ham bone in half a pot (or more) of water for about 60-90 minutes.
  • Strain fat and meat from stock and return stock to pot.
  • Saute chopped onion and garlic in olive oil in a pan with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Separately rinse a bag of split peas.
  • Cut up carrots and celery
  • Add rinsed split peas, sauteed veggies, chopped carrots & celery, and a couple of bay leaves to stock.
  • Simmer for 30-45 minutes.
  • Add the ham meat strained earlier.
  • Simmer for another 15-30 minutes.
