Number of Servings: 10


    1 small ham shank
    3 quarts of water
    1- 24 oz bag of dried split green peas
    3 chicken boullion cubes
    1 medium onion chopped
    1 clove or tsp of garlic
    1 tsp pepper
    1 cup diced carrots
    1 cup diced celery
    1 cup diced potatos


Boil the cooked ham shank in about 3 quarts of water with the chicken boullion cubes peas, onion, garlic, & pepper for about an hour. In the meantime, dice raw carrots, celery and potatos. Remove the shank from the water, and the ham from the bone. Cut into bite size pieces and return to the pot along with the diced vegetables. Continue to simmer for about 2- 3 more hours uncovered until the soup is as thick as you like.
I find that if you refrigerate overnight, heat and serve the next day, all the goodness flavors the soup even more.

  • DE-LI-CIOUS! MmmMmmMmm!

    I added some additional cubed ham (adjusted calories accordingly for my tracker), but otherwise followed recipe exactly. It is very, very good. Thank you for sharing!

  • Had a ham bone and scraps left over from an event so decided to try this. Used slightly more onion, garlic and potatoes (medium red potatoes with the skin on), but only 16 oz. of split peas - because that was all I had. It made almost six qts. and came out very tasty. Now I'll have some to freeze. - 10/16/11
