This is an easy soup with great flavor. I made a few changes... used the whole bag of split peas, cut the liquid down to 9 cups (8 c. chicken broth + 1 c. water), used 8 oz. ham, and omitted the celery. It came out a little too thick, esp after cooling and re-heating, so next time I'll try 9.5 cups liquid and still use the whole bag of peas to see how that works.
This was very tasty, a good solid three-four star dish. I'm upping it to a full 4 stars because it is SO EASY! I substituted a ham hock rather than all of the bacon, but otherwise stuck to the recipe as written.
This is my consistent "go to" split pea soup recipe. I do however make a couple of tweaks. I use center cut bacon instead of Canadian bacon, and I cut up 1 potato, and add that to the vegetable mixture. Perfect every time!
great flavor, was a little thin the first night. Leftovers thickened some. I used 2 C carrots (because I love carrots in soup) and 2 C ham instead of Canadian bacon. I added the ham along with the celery and carrots - just seemed like a more reasonable amount of time to cook it. I also used slightly more peas than called for - just used the whole bag. My broth was 1/2 homemade ham broth and 1/2 chicken stock.
This is a good, solid recipe and I will be happy to make it again. I would use a bit more peas because the soup was a little thinner than I would have liked, but it's super simple and tasty. I used ham instead of Canadian bacon and it substituted well.
This was very simple and turned out delicious. I used real bacon instead of the canadian bacon and crisped it in the dutch oven before putting in the other ingredients. I discarded all but 2 Tbs of the bacon grease. I will now be using this as my split pea recipe, no longer the crock pot version.
