Peach State says: Yummy Homemade Soup

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!
