Split Pea Soup With Ham

Split Pea Soup With Ham

Fall is such a beautiful time of year. From the leaves turning color in our beautiful Mitten state, to apple-picking, it just doesn’t get much better than this. I love our four seasons and wouldn’t trade them for anything. We finally have reached typical fall temps…FINALLY!! Yes, I love summer, boating, etc., but the cooler weather just makes for lots of coziness (that is a word in this house). Soup is always a hit in our house, and once it cools down outside, my baking/soup-making/blogging self goes into high gear. I am pretty certain that by the end of November, my poor tribe has had enough of pumpkin in any way, shape or form. But, I shall soldier on…because I just can’t help myself. Too many delicious recipes floating around out there that I just must try/test. I have been making this soup for a couple of years, and though it’s not at all pretty (or maybe even appetizing…especially if you are not a pea-lover) to look at, it is comfort food at it’s finest in the soup world, IMHO. It doesn’t take long at all and is not difficult in the least. It makes an 8 quart pot, but is super easy to convert to 4 quarts for those of you who have the ability to cook for the actual number of people you intend to feed, unlike me…I just can’t do it…feed an army I shall! But honestly, this is just as good, maybe even better, heated up the next day or two. Give this a try and let us know what you think! Happy Fall friends!

Sláinte!
