This soup has been a stand by for dinner for 3 generations..We were making this a long time before Anderson Pea Soup Co. came out with it in cans! My family likes saltine crackers with it but hard crust bread is good also.

How to Make Split Pea Soup


  1. Wash and rinse peas. Cover Ham Bone with water in a large pot. Add peas, salt, dash of pepper, and garlic powder.
  2. Bring to a boil stir. Lower heat to simmer and cook til peas are soft and smooth. Stir often to keep peas from sticking to bottom of pan. Add water as needed to cover ham bone. Remove ham bone and cool. Take meat off bone and add cubed meat back into peas. Serve nice and warm with a pat of butter floating on top. Enjoy!
