This was tasty, and a good way to use up leftover ham and the ham bone. However, I have a couple of tips. If you soak the peas beforehand (as I did) don't increase the liquid, as several reviewers recommended. I did both, and the peas turned to green mush, and the soup was far too thin for my taste. The flavor was good, however, which is why I gave it four stars.
If I make this again, and I probably will, since my husband LOVES split pea soup, I won't pre-soak the peas, but will increase the liquid. Also, I used turkey stock instead of the water the recipe called for. With that, and the saltiness of the ham, I chose not to add the recommended amount of salt.
