Excuse my ignorance, what is Canadian Split Pea Soup and how doe sit differ from run of the mill split pea soup? I love this soup and would love to hear variations.

A nice baguette or cornbread to go with.

I wondered the same thing. Maybe it uses Canadian bacon, which is essentially ham?

I think Canadians use yellow split peas and no ham. But I am not sure.

We were looking up Orange chicken today but it had too much sugar in it. What is an Apricot vinegar sauce?

Yes, I believe it is yellow split peas and most of it I have seen is not the thick version more of a broth type soup. I could be wrong tho.

Not feeling great today, so threw a couple of pork steaks in the CI frypan browned them added some sliced onion a stuck them in the oven. Maybe will take a short cut and dump a can of mushroom soup in with them and cook a couple of spuds.
