THIS IS A CROCK POT RECIPE. How awesome is that? Anyway, I love split pea soup! My mom used to make it a lot when I lived at home. It’s hearty and comforting and all of the good things that you think of when you think of the food your mom used to make for you. A leftover hambone is ideal for this recipe, but you can just chop up some ham or go buy some at the store if you don’t feel like cooking up a big ham the day before (like I did, haha…but Dane and Kramer love ham so it was worth it). This soup is pretty easy to make and I can’t wait to make it again! I just need to go buy another ham, haha. Recipe after the jump!
