    Delicious flavour. Only used 1 tbsp basil though. Next time I would soak the pea before making as they were still tough after cooking on low for 8 hours. I had to cook for an additional 2.5 hours on high and then the texture was perfect. Would definitely make again!! - 11/25/08

    Great on a cold winter day! We soaked the split peas overnight, at the suggestion of some reviewers. We also sauteed the onion and celery with 2 cloves of minced garlic, before adding to the crock pot. We added black pepper and the ham bone, too. It was a hit! - 1/25/09

    My husband went nuts! This was very good and was perfect after easter. I did throw in some small bits of ham at the end and had to add that to my calorie total. Made it with some Kreutz fat free Cornbread and Landolakes lowfat butter and what a meal!! Thanks. - 4/19/09

    I made this on the stove. Sauteed the veggies then added the split peas and ham. Next time will not add the water. I had to cook it for an additional hour to evaporate the excess liquid. LOVED the soup! - 1/27/08

    Made this for dinner tonight and it was awesome! After reading reviews I used the 4 cups water to soak the peas overnight, added the rest of the ingredients in the morning and cooked on low for 10 hrs. Used 1 Tbsp basil, 1 tsp thyme, and a bay leaf. Will definitely make again!!! - 1/30/13

  • I was a little disappointed with this soup. I love split pea soup and had never made it before. This isn't exactly what I was looking for. I should have read the reviews and cut down on the basil. Surprisingly my husband loved it, so that's why I gave it a 4 rather than a 3. - 2/26/13

  • Awesome soup, I have only made Split pea a handful of times, this will become my recipe for it. I added a little bit of red pepper flakes and did not have basil so I used Oregano (one about 1T), also presoaked the peas. My husband had three servings. - 2/9/09

  • DH and kids all said this is the best pea soup I've made. As usual, I used my own defatted ham stock rather than recipe's bought stock. Mine was not very thick but I didn't let it go the full 8 hours either. The basil is really good in this soup - never would have thought it... - 4/18/07
