Weekly Recipe: Pea and Ham Soup

I got the Christmas ham bone, after my brother had finished cutting off the meat, for a pea and ham soup. I thought that I'd try a new recipe... this one not as thick and heavy as my usual recipe. You can use bacon bones or a smoked ham hock instead.

Put two cups of dried split peas (I used green and yellow) and a diced onion in a large pot.

Add two peeled, diced carrots and the ham bone.

And three cloves of garlic, a bay leaf and some thyme.

Cover it all in water and simmer for a couple of hours.

Cool a little, then fish out the bones and put the whole soup through the food processor. Make sure all the bones are out, otherwise the blender gets unhappy... Then reheat and eat with bread.
