Eileens Green Split Pea Soup

Eileen Hineline


Autumn time was always the time my mom would make many soups for dinner and serve with salad and french bread. I have always loved split pea soup and make it as often as i can but always add this and that to make it my own.I think their is nothing better than a hot bowl of soup after a long day or when you need to warm up. my family loves it and I hope you will too-:o)

  2. Add enclosed packet of Ham flavoring with salt and pepper. Cover, reduce heat and simmer about 30 minutes. stir occasionally.
