Split pea and Bacon Soup

There’s nothing quite like a nice home made split pea soup.  With only 5 main ingredients its a quick and simple recipe.

1/2 lb. bacon cut into small slices

1 chopped onion

Fry together until onion is caramelized. This is what produces the best flavor.  ADD:

1/2 c. chopped celery

1/2 c. chopped carrots

1 package split peas

Use a 3 quart pot, fill with water. May add seasoning to taste. (I didn’t add anything extra, figuring on the bacon adding the extra salt).  Cook until pureed consistency.
