♥People either love this Soup or don't like it at all. We love it! ♥
As a Child I did not like this Soup at all. When I was first started dating my Husband, I had made a Ham and he asked if I made Split Pea Soup,,, I told him that I didn't like it but that I would make it for him seeing as I love to cook. I planned a different meal for me. As I was cooking this Soup,, I couldn't believe how good it smelled. So I decided to have it as my meal and I loved it! :)
Split Pea Soup - Gluten Free:
Rise in a colander:
1 Package of Green Split Peas (***SEE FOOTNOTE***)
In a Large Pot combine:
Package of Peas
9 Cups Water
1 Meaty Ham Bone (Left Over from a Meal)
Salt, Pepper and Peppercorns to taste
Bring to a boil, Cover and simmer 1 1/2-2 Hours. Peas will have softened.
Remove Bone and place in a large colander,, Cool off a little.
Remove the meat off the bones and cut into bite size pieces.
Place the Ham in a bowl and Refrigerator while the Soup continues to cook. (I do this so that the Ham doesn't dry out,, some people add it right back in).
Add to the Split Peas:
1 Package Baby Carrots
3-4 Stalks Celery Chopped
1 Large Onion Chopped
Fresh Garlic to Taste
3-4 Bay Leaves.
Bring to a boil then turn down to a simmer
Cook uncovered on low until the vegetables are just about done and the Soup thickens. About 1 Hour.
Add the Meat back to the Soup. My bone did not have enough Meat so I bought a Ham Steak and diced it up and added it to the Soup. Simmer for another half an hour.
I used Hurst Green Split Peas: (I did not use the Ham Flavor Packet)
Arrowhead Mills is labeled Gluten Free:
I read on numerous sites that Goya beans are naturally gluten free but may be subjected to Cross Contamination. I could not verify this information on their website. They may have updated their web-page since I typed up this recipe. If you use Goya I would check with their Website or Email them.
