Expert Tips

  • How-To Preparing split peas for cooking is easy! Just pick over the dried split peas and discard any grit or discoloured peas. Place the split peas in a bowl, and cover them with water. After a minute or two, remove any skins or split peas that float to the top. Finally, rinse the split peas in a colander.
  • Substitution Looking for another option for a ham bone? Use 2 pounds (1 kg) smoked pork hocks.
  • Serve With Serve this hearty soup with warm crusty bread and a fresh green salad drizzled with raspberry vinaigrette.
