Never had a fat problem with my split pea soup and ham/sausage. I don't think I've ever skimmed my split pea soup and I've been making it for nearly 50 years.

I use everything from ham shanks, smoked pork hocks, kielbasa, etc. Usually any hammy-, smoky-flavored meat. Split pea soup is real "soul" food in our house.

Ah, aren't you a sweetie?!

I just love split pea soup. The last time I made it, I had enough to put three big containers in the freezer. Sadly, they're all gone now. Boo hoo!

Just make it up as you go along. hahaha Make your own great tastes - yes, use bacon grease or chicken fat for flavor. A little won't hurt you. But BOY does it taste good!

That recipe sounds good. The last time I made split pea soup the recipe made enough for three families and it just so happened that DH had to work late and never came home for dinner, and none of my neigbors were sick or had just had babies so I had no excuse to give any away. It sat in my freezer for weeks and ended up in the trash. *sigh* All that hard work for nothing. I didn't even eat much myself because I had morning sickness at the time.

B'sgirl, I have frozen pea soup for months with no problem. Next time, you should feel comfortable freezing it for at least six months.
