    Split Pea Soup

    Well LOML has been complaining that I have accumulated a few ham bones in the freezer and asked me when I was going to use them up. I usually make some bean soup with them. the she reminded me that I have complained that I can get decent pea soup since I was spoiled by the soup at Pea Soup Andersen's in Buellton California. Sea suggested I try to make some so I looked around on the internet for some recipes and came up with one that sounded like it would work. here is what I ended up with.

    1 ham bone with a fair mount of leftover meat on it in a pot.
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1/4 tsp thyme
    1/4 tsp majoram
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1/2 tsp salt
    3 quarts water
    opps forgot
    2 carrots diced
    2 celery stalks diced
    1/2 onion diced



    place on low heat until it starts to simmer then leave simmering for 2 hours until the meat is falling off the bone. remove bone from broth and add 1 lbs dried split peas remove all the meat from the bone and place meat and bone back in pot, let cook until peas are mushy (about 1-1/2 hr. ) . Remove bone and puree soup. (I use a immersion blender) I also didn't use a teaspoon just eye balled it. I think mine was as good if not better then I had at peas Soup Andersen's

    Sorry, we mostly just toss leeks into soups and the like. Haven't tried them in a stir fry. Hmm.

    Jim Sherrie won't eat it either (although she has never tried it either) but believe it or not it will freeze. I put the remainder in smaller single serving containers and freeze em. Then I have em for lunch when I am in the mood.
