Slow-cooked split pea and ham soup

My husband’s favorite soup I make is split pea and ham soup. A funny thing happened  last week – my hairdresser and a close friend all started to rave about how they love split pea and ham soup. Next thing I know, I am making a batch of split pea and ham soup, and decided to try it in a slow-cooker. I got rave reviews and the other great thing it cost me $4 and it serves at least 8 people!!

Ingredients

  • 1 bag of split peas (dried green peas ~450 g)
  • 2 Ham hocks (bacon hocks)
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • ~1-2 litres of water

Place all ingredients in the slow-cooker. Cook on low for 6 hours. The meat should be falling of the bone, take out the meat and bones. Pull the meat off the bones, shred and put back in the soup and stir. Throw the bones away. Place into containers and either store in the fridge and or the freezer.

When you reheat the soup, you may need to add water, also season with salt and pepper to your taste preference.
