Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt butter and oil in a Dutch oven over medium-low heat. Add celery, onion, carrot, and salt. Cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in peas and garlic. Nestle ham bone into the pot; add stock and diced ham. Fill pot with water to about 1 1/2 inches from the top. Mix and bring soup to a boil.

  • Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer, scraping the bottom of the pot and stirring every 30 minutes, until peas are mostly disintegrated, about 2 1/2 hours. Turn ham bone and skim surface for fat once every hour. Take bone out, remove any meat, and return meat to the pot. Season with salt and pepper.

I added 7 cups of liquid ( more water than broth). The ham that is on the ham bone was enough ham for the soup. So easy and delicious! Read More

I loved this recipe! Don’t change a thing. I had to use a slow cooker because I was out all day and I might have added to much water because of the size of the pot. Consequently it was a tad thinner than I wanted after 6 hours. Solved that problem by adding a cup of milk and continued cooking on low for a total of 8 hours. Read More

Great soup! I could not find a Hambone at my local grocery store so I used hamhocks instead and just under a pound of thick sliced ham. So I scraped off the meat from the hamhocks and the soup really came out great! Read More

I like the recipe, simple packed with flavor. I substituted carrot with sweet potato, and pork ham bone with smoked turkey. Other changes I made was browning the smoked turkey first then adding in the veggies to saute. Yummmmm Read More
