I know it looks weird and green and it’s the punch line to a joke we told in 5th grade,* but I love split pea soup anyway.
Split pea soup
- 1 C split peas, rinsed and picked over
- 1 slice bacon
- 3-4 C water
- Salt, to taste
Fry your bacon in a soup pot, til almost crisp. Add the split peas and water, and simmer for 1 hour, checking occasionally to see if it’s getting too dry. Add more water if so. Add salt and serve it up.
*”what did you do then?” “pee green soup” Remember that?
