We love split pea soup and technically, it isn’t on the diet because of the peas but . . I made it anyway. There was still one ham left in the freezer from last year’s pig we bought so I cooked it earlier this week. I didn’t want to have ham for the rest of the week so I cut all the meat of the bone, froze the bone, froze part of the meat and used the rest to make a big pot of split pea soup.
Three pounds of split peas is about as much as this pot will hold once the soup is made.
Seven quarts of split pea soup with ham and carrots. That’s something we will both look forward to having!
