Recipe by Raccoon
"I created this recipe when I did not have a ham bone laying around and was really needing some good split pea soup. Serve a hot bowl of this soup with a nice crusty bread of your choice. I did not add any salt to this recipe due to the ham, but you can add salt as needed."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Fabulous! I used a ham steak, because that's what I had on hand and a heaping teaspoon of Better than Stock Ham base. No other changes! Hubby said it was the best tasting ever.
I made this just as is with one exception:I didn't have any ham sitting around, so I got a pound of thick-sliced smoked ham from the deli, chopped it up, and added it. This came out delicious. I probably could have rinsed the ham, as it's rather salty, but I like that. I also could have used less ham, as I'm frugal and that ended up being a lot of ham.
Loved it!! Best pea soup ever
