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.

daylightsunGreat recipe, remind's me of my Mum's except she did not add potatoe just more carrots and celery and fresh peas at the end along with chopped up mint leave's. Mum allway's used smoked ham hocks for better flavour and she used to cut the ham hocks to the bone with a sharp knife into sections so the meat would fall of the bone.(no mess).I can't believe someone would rate it as 1 star without even making it. 5 Star recipe for sure.8m ago
vivshuEasy (dare I say) peasy! And tastes awesome, especially on a cold winter evening. I much prefer using a ham hock (I used 2 small smoked ones for this recipe, about a pound in total) instead of adding ham at the end. Adding the ham did not impart that much flavor and at the same time, the ham loses its own flavor quite quickly so it's not that good to eat.1y ago
piratedancerExcellent recipe! !!2y ago
nakeyshanewmanI didn't like this recipe at all. It was too vague and certainly wouldn't have came out right if I relied on this recipe alone. I ended up looking up other split pea recipes which made my soup come out much better. I wouldn't advise anyone to use this. Find a different one. Luckily, my soup turned out amazing no thanks to this recipe.4y ago
ashleighholdenWas my first time making it and i am so happy with how it came out4y ago
FarNorthBlondiSimple, good, but a bit bland.4y ago
gdickens3I love split-pea soup and this is fantastic!! .. husband said it was the best he's had and defiantly beats anything canned or prepackaged. This is a great one bowl meal; very hearty.4y ago
heidivanleeuwenExcellent! I'm Dutch and this is close to the real thing. I added small cubed fennel root and some sprigs from the top. Used smoked ham (on sale because it's just after christmas).. num num4y ago
