Wonderful Split Pea Soup With Ham

205

For some strange reason I have always LOVED split pea soup!. With carrots and onions it has such a wonderful, rich flavor. It is a great comfort food that I don’t get often enough (my children are not fans because it is green). The barley adds a kind of nutty texture that I really liked. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
