Pea & Ham Soup

I love Pea and Ham soup in Winter. It's so warming and yummy. I've made a few different types through the years and this one is the easiest and tastiest. I use Bacon Ribs because they impart a delicious, smoky flavour to the soup. You know they're done when they fall off the bone as you shred the meat off them. This soup is great with crusty bread and good company to share it with.

Pea &  Ham Soup


I used to use a leftover ham bone but since they're not always easily available I had the inspired notion to use the ribs that you find hanging in deli's. You could use ham hocks or just chunks of ham instead.

Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc are the best wines to pair with Pea & Ham Soup.

The reason you soak split peas is to remove the enzymes they contain that are hard to digest (and therefor cause the flatulance often associated with pea soup). Yes, you can cook them without soaking but be prepared to face the consequences. Not recomended if you are planning on taking the family for a long drive the next morning!
