I know split pea soup is one of those foods that you either love or hate. But for some reason I'd been craving it lately, but I've never made it before. I had some left over ham from dinner the night before so I improvised on a recipe and threw it all in the crock pot :) It turned out pretty well.
8 oz dried split peas
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
2 cups chopped ham (also any left over ham juice you might have from cooking it previously)
1 onion diced
2 carrots peeled and diced
Cook the onions with a little oil, garlic and salt, I also added the carrots too. Then throw everything in the crock pot and cook for 4-6 hours on high. Season with Salt and pepper to taste!
