Mom’s Split Pea Soup

If you think you don’t like split pea soup, you need to try this. Leftover Christmas ham bones welcome!

Ingredients:

1 package of dry split peas

1 c celery (I leave this out because I don’t like the taste of celery)

1 c carrots

1.5 c onions

1 t salt

1/2 t pepper

1/4 t marjoram crushed

ham bone

Instructions: rinse peas, combine with 2 quarts of water, and put in ham bone and everything except for the carrots and celery.  Bring to a boil, cover and simmer 1.5 hours, stirring occasionally.  Remove bone and cut off meat and dice and add it back to the soup.  Add the celery and carrots and simmer uncovered for 30-40 minutes.
