From Betty's Soul Food Collection... Comfort food in a bowl, homemade soup does wonders for the soul!
Preparing split peas for cooking is easy! Just pick over the dried split peas and discard any grit or discolored peas. Place the split peas in a bowl, and cover them with water. After a minute or two, remove any skins or split peas that float to the top. Finally, rinse the split peas in a colander.
Looking for another option for a ham bone? Use 2 pounds smoked pork hocks.
Serve this hearty soup with warm crusty bread and a fresh green salad drizzled with raspberry vinaigrette. Mmm!
