YELLOW SPLIT PEA SOUP a Swedish delight !

Went I went to buy yellow split peas,for my soup recipe was I surprised to find the stores (4) in Spokane do not carry them!
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.
Thank you. Nancy 6/15/13
