From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Chris Bjelica) Date: 26 Sep 1993 19:13:05 GMT I have a batch of this cooking now and thought I would post it. I usually double the recipe and freeze it in individual servings. It's easy and always tastes great. From an old Betty Crocker Cookbook Ingredients: 8 cups water 1 pound dried split peas (about 2-1/4 cups) 1 to 2 lb smoked ham 1 med onion 1 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper 2 or 3 carrots chopped 2 or 3 stalks celery chopped Heat water and peas to boiling. Boil for 2 minutes, then remove from heat and cover. Let sit for 1 hour. Add ham (whole), onion, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until peas are tender, about 1 hour. Remove ham and trim meat from bone. (I usually use 1 lb boneless smoked ham) Cut ham to 1/2 inch pieces. Stir ham, carrots, and celery into soup. Cover and simmer until veggies are tender, about 45 minutes. Like I said, it freezes well and is a very convenient side to a sandwich or whatever.
