  1. Place dried split peas, ham hock, and bacon into slow cooker; pour in chicken broth and 3 1/2 cups water.
  2. Cover cooker and cook on High until peas are tender and broken apart, 3 to 4 hours. Stir in more water as needed to prevent soup from burning on the bottom. Stir occasionally throughout cooking.
  3. Stir potatoes, carrots, leek, onion, celery, and garlic into soup; mix in more water, if needed. Cover and cook soup on High for 2 more hours.
  4. Season with salt, black pepper, thyme, nutmeg, and cloves; mix sausage slices into soup. Cover and cook 2 more hours to blend the flavors.

I really enjoy this recipe. The only thing I omitted was the garlic, and that is only because my husband doesn't like garlic. Also I didn't have any smoked sausage, but I had plenty of ham to ma...

All I have to say is OMG!!!! I was skeptical about this soup but I’m glad I made it. We don’t eat pork so I put some chicken pieces in it along with turkey sausage and some vegetables. Kids and ...

This soup was absolutely delish and a hit with both my hubby and me! My only changes were to use all chicken broth (two 32oz boxes) rather than half water. I also added 1/2 tsp cumin at the sugg...
