Split Pea Soup

1 (16 ounce) package dried green split peas, rinsed
1 meaty ham bone or 2 cups of diced ham
1 cup of sliced carrots
1 cup chopped yellow onion
2 ribs of celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
6 cups chicken broth


Layer ingredients in slow cooker in the order given, adding worth last.  Do not stir the ingredients. 

Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 8-10 hours or until peas are soft (and if using ham bone, ham falls off the bone).

Use emulsifier to blend ingredients together until you reach desired consistency.

I usually serve with Pineapple Sausage that I grill on the barbecue.  It gives an excellent contrast to the soup that the family really enjoys.  This is the perfect rainy day meal.Hubby Rating: 10!  This is one of his favorite rainy day meals...this along and the corn chowder soup.  That is DELICIOUS (I will be sharing that recipe soon!).  Happy eating!
