Split Pea Soup


1 (1lb.) pkg. dried split peas
2 lbs. ham hocks
1 medium onion (chopped)
3 stalks celery (chopped)
1 clove garlic (minced)
1/8 teas. Pepper
Salt to taste ( I put 2 teas.)
Parsley sprigs

Combine all of your ingredients in a Dutch oven. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered, 1 hour or until peas are soft.  Remove ham hock. Put pea mixture through a food mill or sieve. (I ran mine in small batches through a food processor). Cook over low heat until thoroughly reheated. Add salt to taste and garnish with parsley sprigs if desired.

  1. Add the ham pieces back into the soup after you purée it.
