Pea Soup

Momma's Recipe for Split Pea Soup (as adapted by myself) Soak 1 lb. split peas overnight in enough water to cover and 2 T whey or yogurt In the afternoon of the following day, place the peas (with soaking water) in a pot with a ham bone (the one I used was very meaty, so the meat fell off as it cooked). Simmer on low for a few hours until peas are fall-apart tender. Add water as needed. In a separate pot, boil the following veggies until tender 1 onion, coarsely chopped 2 carrots, sliced 1 large potato (or a few smaller ones) When tender, blend until smooth. Add to split peas. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove ham bone before serving. Great with a small bit of sour cream (or a drizzle of tasty olive oil) and crusty bread.
