Split Pea and Ham Soup

1 pound split peas

One day before:

1 pound smoked ham shanks
1 onion, quartered
2 celery ribs, cut in three pieces
1 carrot, cit in 2 inch pieces
1 teaspoon coarse ground pepper

Put all in large sauce pan, cover with water. Bring to biol over high heat, cover and reduce heat to simmer for 4 hours. Once shank meat is tender remove from broth. Allow broth to cool and using immersion blender, puree the veggies. Pick meat from bones, dice the meat. Refrigerate broth and meat separately over night.

The next day:

In large sauce pan bring 4 cups of water and 2 cups of the ham broth to a boil, stir in 1 pound of split peas, reduce heat, cover and simmer (about 1 hour) until peas begin to fall apart, add more broth if needed. Peas should thicken soup without having to puree. Add diced meat. Add more broth to desired consistency, I like mine thick. Salt to taste. I used my Alderwood smoked Salt, terrific.

This made about 6-1 cup servings.

Thanks, I had to think hard about how I made it. I don't usually make soups from a recipe, just a general idea.

Shrek got himself a slice of it today, he said he wasn't sure if he should add milk or just fry it.

hmm ham shanks...ham shanks.

The rest sounds easy, simple and inviting to make and doesn't require a slo cooker, for us pots and pans types.

Smoked ham works, too, you would have more meat and less bone.
