A nice bowl of soup

Well, it’s going to get cold again. So I sat in the sun & read, raked some leaves (basically trying to clear a path to the front door from all the black walnuts) and made some split pea soup. Somehow fall just calls for a hearty soup, don’t you think?

Here’s my crockpot split pea soup, in case you want to cook along:

1# green split peas, rinsed
1 hambone or meaty hamhocks, or 2 C diced ham
3 carrots, peeled & diced
2 stalks of celery, w/leaves, chopped
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
1/4 C parsley, chopped
Salt & Pepper to taste
6 C hot water

Put in crockpot in order listed. Don’t stir. High for 4-5 hrs or low for 8-10 hrs. You can add a little sherry @ serving time if you like it. (It’s better than it sounds.)
