The best split pea and ham soup.



1/21lb leftover ham
1 1/2 lbs of dried split peas
2 chopped carrots
1 chopped onion
3 minced garlic cloves
1 teaspoon cracked pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon olive oil


Rinse, drain and pick over your peas. Add peas to crock pot, cover with 3 inches of warm water and turn crockpot on high. Add ham and cover. Saute carrots and onions in olive oil until lightly browned, add minced garlic and saute for one minute longer. Toss sautéed goodness over ham and pea mixture. Add salt, pepper and thyme. Stir and replace lid.

Set it and forget it. Come back 6 hours later and eat until your belly is nice and full. Serve with rolls or crackers.
