Split pea soup

Dennis Purcell


I like to use celery salt, onion power and garlic power in many recipes. I adjust the salt content by adjusting the onion and garlic power to onion and garlic salt.
Split pea soup has been a favorite of mine for over 60 years and this is by far the best recipe of split pea soup I have made yet.
