YELLOW SPLIT PEA SOUP a Swedish delight !
Nancy J. Patrykus
You can find the green ones and plenty of lentils! Probably because there are many lentil farms around here.
Finally my friend in Chicago, mailed 3 one pound packages of the yellow ones. Even though there is hardly any difference between green & yellow split peas,they say....I find that they have a milder flavor. I hope you will try this delicious recipe, and send me your comments.
They are cooked basically with the same recipes.

Add to the pot,
with all the other ingredients.

If you need more liquid,
add 1 can of chicken broth.
I like Kavli, 5 whole grain, Crispbreasd.
It is imported from Norway.
sprinkle with a little parsley
and serve this wonderful soup.
Adding salt depends on how salty your ham is.
You can decide, after a taste.
