Peach State says: Yummy Homemade Soup

20130105-163114.jpg

Inspired by recent recipes and the fact of two left over ham bones I had in the fridge I had to act. It is time to share a recipe for a Yummy Homemade Soup!

It started with a Hambone and diced onion:

I brought hambone and onions to a boil in a large pot of water.

I sorted and rinsed the split peas</em.

HINT) Once boiling…reduce the heat and simmer for abut 30 minutes.
Also skim the foam off the top of the peas.

I drained the split peas once they tender. I removed the hambone leaving the soup base/broth in the larger pot. I poured the drained peas into the soup base/broth and stirred.

The soup has taken on a wonderful smooth, creamy texture and the aroma is to die for. I dipped a spoon in and tasted the delightful soup. It is wonderful!

I will enjoy this tonight with a lovely grilled cheese sandwich. I hope you enjoy this recipe…my family will!

Have a great day!

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
