Ingredients

    Ham bone with a bit of meat left on it.
    8 cups chicken stock
    enough water to cover ham bone in pot (approx 4-6 cups)
    large onion, cut into large chunks
    fresh garlic to taste (leave the skins on, they will be removed)
    2-3 carrots cut into large chunks
    2 bay leaves
    10 peppercorns or 1/4 tsp ground pepper

    2-3 carrots cut into small pieces
    2 cups yellow or green split peas

    2 cups frozen green peas.

Directions

Place ham bone in large heavy pot. The pot must be large enough to be able to completely cover the bone with liquid. Add in the onion and carrots, bayleaf, garlic and peppercorns. pour in the chicken stock and top up with water till the ham bone is completely covered with liquid. Bring the stock to the boil, then turn down heat and simmer till the meat starts to fall off the bone, approximately 2-3 hours. Strain the bone and vegetables from the broth. put the broth back into the pot, add in the split peas and the chopped carrots. cook at a simmer till the split peas begin to break up, approximately 1 hour. Just before serving this add in the frozen peas and meat stripped from the bone and bring the soup back up to temperature. Makes 12- 1 cup servings. Serve this with croutons or garlic toast on the bottom
