Yield Makes 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 lb yellow split peas, picked over
2 qt water
1/2 lb meaty salt pork (rinsed if crusted with salt), cut into 1/2-inch cubes, or a meaty ham bone or ham hock
2 lb onions (5 medium), finely chopped
1 medium leek (white and pale green parts only), chopped and rinsed
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives
1/2 teaspoon dried savory, crumbled
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  • Rinse peas and combine in a 6- to 8-quart heavy pot with water, salt pork, and half of onions. Bring to a boil, skimming froth, then reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until peas are tender but not falling apart, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  • Cook leek and remaining onions in butter in a large heavy skillet over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 10 minutes. Add to soup along with chives, savory, salt, and pepper and continue to simmer, partially covered, until peas are falling apart and soup is thickened, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Remove ham bone or ham hock, if using, then shred meat and return meat to soup.

This soup is way too salty. I couldn't even finish it.

I followed the recipe exactly, but my soup didn't turn out as creamy as I expected. I'm not sure what I did wrong.

This soup is a little bland for my taste. I had to add some salt and pepper to it.

This soup is a great way to use up leftover ham. It's also a very affordable meal. I was able to make a big pot of soup for less than $10.
