Split Pea Soup



  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven.
  2. Cook onion and carrot in the oil until onions are light golden brown; 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Sort through split peas and take out any foreign matter such as small dirt clods, small rocks, etc. I usually pour the peas slowly into a strainer and then rinse.
  4. Add remainder of ingredients along with rinsed split peas to Dutch oven.
  5. Simmer for 40 minutes.
  6. Add salt to taste.


Serves 4 to 6.

Serve with cornbread.
