"The Dutch version of split pea soup: Snert! Use the slow cooker for convenience; however, you'll need to stick around to stir and add water as needed."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This soup had a very pleasant flavor...even though I didn't have all the right ingredients. I had a VERY meaty ham bone in place of the ham hock, no bacon, no leek and no sausage. But I followed the recipe with everything else. The peas were soaked overnight prior to putting them into the slow cooker. The ham bone was cooked for the first 6 hours after which time I took it out and let it cool to remove the meat...adding the meat back into the cooker. At the very end, I used my immersible blender and gave it a few swirls to thicken the soup up a bit. I never had to add any additional liquid. Served with home made corn bread, and it made a delicious winter meal. I hope to have sausage on hand next time! Thanks for sharing!
Used a smoked ham hock and added 1/2 tsp cumin. Best soup ever.
I really enjoy this recipe. The only thing I omitted was the garlic, and that is only because my husband doesn't like garlic. Also I didn't have any smoked sausage, but I had plenty of ham to make up for it.
I did not add the additional salt because the ham I used was salty enough.
The only thing I would change for the next time I make would be to omitt the ground cloves. It is a much stronger spice than I anticipated, and though my soup still turned out great with it, I would prefer the soup better without the ground cloves.
Love the Dutch name and the soup tastes very good but the recipe has serious problems. The dried split peas are well cooked, breaking up and coloring the soup in an hour or less, nowhere near the 3 to 4 hours in the recipe. Altitude makes a difference and I'm at 200 ft. but one would have to be in Flagstaff, AZ, 7,000 ft., for it to take 3-4 hours. Diced potatoes will cook in less than half an hour and be absolute mush in an hour so the two additional hours in the recipe is way way too long. Also, the bacon does add a good flavor to the soup but the recipe should call for it to be fried to near crisp. The salt needed is more like 3/4 tsp than 1/2 and, although I'm not a spicy food fan, I did use 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper rather than the 1/2 tsp called for. I also used a large pot, one gallon, which was just the right size.
