Mom's Split Pea & Ham Soup
Thick, warm and great on a cold day. Filling and healthy enough for the family.
"Easy to make, definitely. I was at first not sure about the addition of carrot and potato, but they ended up being great compliments! I used some smoked ham hocks, about 2lbs worth, and added a little extra water, maybe 1 extra cup. I felt it needed quite a bit of salt and pepper, and some additional garlic, but I also like my pea soup well peppered. My girlfriend loved it with no additional seasoning, however.
Over an easy and very worth-while dish! Would definitely make again. Perfect winter soul food."

Mom's Split Pea & Ham Soup Preparation
Bring the water to a boil then turn down to a simmer and add the peas, water, ham hock (or, if using ham, add it during the last 20 minutes of cooking along with potatoes and carrots), garlic, onion, celery and bay leaf and cook until peas are soft, about 55 minutes. Add potato and carrot (and ham if using that instead of ham hock), and cook an additional 20 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
