Pea Soup

Here is recipe for Pea Soup. This is a recipe that Mary really likes. Picking meal menus for her can be troublesome. She doesn’t remember what she does or doesn’t like. She doesn’t care for steaks or chops, because they take to much work to chew. She just cleans her bowl. I don’t need to nag her to finish her soup. It also seems to taste better reheated in the microwave.

But before I get to the recipe, a plug. Reynolds makes plastic crock pot liners that make cleanup a lot easier. They can be found in the aluminum foil / plastic wrap section of the grocery store. four to a package.

Ingredients:

  • 3 good sized carrots (pealed and sliced)
  • 2 Celery stalks (chopped)
  • 1 Medium onion (Chopped)
  • 1 16 oz package of split peas. (it’s the only size they come in)
  • 1 32 oz. carton of chicken stock (We use the low salt variety. Your cardiologist will appreciate it.)
  • 1 8 oz package of diced ham. (if you happen to have a leftover ham bone, that works. Usually we don’t.)

Directions:

  1. Chop all of the vegetables and add to the crock pot.
  2. Rinse the split peas in a colander. Add to the pot.2019-03-23 13.18.03
  3. Add the ham
  4. Add the stock. (You may need to add an additional cup of water to cover all of the ingredients. Use your judgement.)
  5. Cover and cook on high for about four-five hours. Check half way. Stir to mix all the stuff. When it’s done, it should be nice and smooth.

Oh, and don’t forget to plug in the crock pot. I’ve done that once or twice. BTW, our crock-pot is 41 years old. Got it as a wedding present (1978).

Here’s what the finished product looks like:
