Crock pot/Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup | Parsnip and Parsimony Staple

Snapshot 1 (3-22-2017 10-25 AM)

I grew up with pea soup. My mom always turned the ham bone left over from Easter, into a delicious pot of pea soup. When I got married, I wasn’t home as much to create that wonderful simmering pot of pea soup like my mom did. That’s when I turned to my crock pot. I LOVE my crock pot because it does ALL the work for me. But it also creates that wonderful pot of soup, just like my mom’s.  Here the is my ole’ stand-by recipe that I have made so many times. It’s easy, tastes wonderful and it makes a BIG pot of it. Make sure you use a LARGE crock pot for this recipe. When it starts to boil, if it’s too full, the pot will boil over and make a MESS of your crock pot. Trust me, I’ve had that happen one too many times!!!

Enjoy!

Buying and cooking with a ham can be a very economical choice for a large family. You can squeeze so many meals out of a ham and really stretch your grocery budget.  But lots of times, you get tired of just serving slices of ham for dinner so this recipe is GREAT to mix it up and to create a easy, comfort food meal. My family loves this dish and it goes great with a side salad and a bowl of fruit
