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

How to Make YELLOW SPLIT PEA SOUP a Swedish delight !

Step-by-Step

  1. Rinse and sort thru peas.
    Add and put into the crockpot
    with the fresh water.
  2. Chop onion.
    Add to the pot.
  3. Dice the ham .
    Add to the pot,
    with all the other ingredients.
    Cover and cook on high about 3 hours.
    If you need more liquid,
    add 1 can of chicken broth.
  4. Serve with crusty bread, rye bread or crackers,
    I like Kavli, 5 whole grain, Crispbreasd.
    It is imported from Norway.
    See picture.
  5. Set the butter out for crackers, etc.
    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.

    salt & pepper shakers
    I won at our Red Hat Luncheon.
    They are such cute little piggy's,
    with the red hats on.!
