In the Kitchen: Split Pea Soup with Ham
I was in a bind. I was quite hungry and had not put any meat in the refridgerator the night before. I went by Kroger and bought some of my favorite canned ham, dried split peas, and went home to start my soup. I combined the split peas, cut potatoes and carrots, Cut up ham, 4 cloves grated garlic, and some thyme in 5 cups water and set the pot to boil. It took over an hour to get the peas to soften even thought the package said 30min. I served with buttered sourdough toast sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
