Preparation

Step 1

In large bowl, cover peas with 1 qt. cold water and soak overnight. If you need a faster method, simmer the peas gently for 2 min. and then soak for 1 hour.

Once peas are soaked put them & liquid in a large stock pot. Add 1 qt. chicken broth, ham bone, onion, salt, pepper & bay leaf. Cover, bring to boil and then simmer for 1-1/2 hours. stirring occasionally.

Remove bone; cut off meat, dice & return meat to soup. Add 1 cup chopped ham, celery, carrots and potatoes. Cook slowly, uncovered for 30-40 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. If soup becomes too thick thin with chicken broth.
