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.

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!
