"This is a good way to use leftover ham, quite inexpensive, and VERY tasty. I hope that you enjoy it. Some people like to add carrots or other types of vegetables. Don't forget to serve with buttered bread toasted in the oven."

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 2 hrs 5 mins


1 cup chopped onion

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

1 pound dried split peas

1 pound ham bone

1 pinch salt and pepper to taste

Add all ingredients to list


1In a medium pot, saute onions in oil. Add the split peas, ham bone, and enough water to cover ingredients; season with salt and pepper.

2Cover, and cook until there are no peas left, just a green liquid, 2 hours. While it is cooking, check to see if water has evaporated. You may need to add more water as the soup continues to cook.

3Once the soup is a green liquid remove from heat, and let stand so it will thicken. Once thickened you may need to heat through to serve.
