the flavor was wonderful; however, there is just no way that the split peas will be done within the cooking time indicated. I put everything in a crockpot - on high - as I had seen suggestions to do this; however, after almost 5 hours, the peas still weren't done. I transferred all to my dutch oven and boiled everything for another 45 minutes or so. Next time I will first cook my peas for about an hour and let them sit for another hour and then add all other ingredients. Other than that, it was a wonderful soup. I do miss my ham though and will probably use ham instead of bacon next time. Just save your bacon grease and saute your onions and leaks for your next pot of yumminess!
