Hearty Split Pea Soup

submitted by Lindsay Young
serves 9

*This is also a budget-saver meal. I serve it on
dreary days with fresh crusty bread. Even Michael,
who hates split peas, like this.

16 oz. dried split peas
2 c. diced fully cooked lean ham
1 c. diced carrots
1 med. onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 bay leaves
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
5 c. boiling water
1 c. hot milk

In the slow cooker, layer the first nine ingredients
in the order listed (do not stir!). cover and cook on
high 4-5 hours until the vegetables are tender. Stir
in milk. Discard bay leaves before serving.
