A great way to use up the leftover ham from any special occasion, this dish always brings back memories of my years in Montreal. A classic Canadian soup that is a fantastic fall/winter meal - especially with a loaf of fresh baguette! You can also substitute Dried Barley for the peas for a different variation that is just as tasty. simply soak the barley while the stock is boiling and omit the puree step - everything else remains the same! Enjoy!
