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.
