post Recipe: Hearty Pea & Ham Soup with Cornmeal Muffins by Rose

Hearty Pea & Ham Soup

500 grams of yellow split peas
250 grams of bacon pieces
6 bacon stock cubes (can use chicken stock cubes as bacon ones are hard to get)
5 cups of water
2 large carrots, grated
1 large onion, finely chopped
1-2 tablespoons of sugar
1 pinch of black pepper
1 bayleaf

Wash peas in a strainer under cold running water to remove excess starch. Place all ingredients in a large pot, bring to the boil, turn down heat & simmer until peas are tender, around 1&1/2 – 2 hours. Remove bay leaf & use either a stab blender or egg beater to puree to a smooth consistency. Serve with a crusty roll or home made bread for a filling winter meal. Or place all ingredients into a crockpot & cook on low for 8-10 hours.
You can also add bacon bones to this as well. Remove them before pureeing.
