Description Edit


Pea soup

A strong soup with peas and meat like smoked sausage, smoked ham or ham hock.

Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a large heavy pot, then add peas and ham hock.
  2. When the water reboils, reduce the heat to a simmer and let cook, partially covered, for 2 hours.
  3. Stir it from time to time.
  4. Stir in the rest of the ingredients (except the kielbasa) and simmer for 30 more minutes, stirring from time to time.
  5. Remove the ham hock, cut away the meat, and return it to the pot with the kielbasa.
  6. Simmer for a couple of hours.
  7. Although the soup is now done and can be eaten, best is to leave it overnight and gently reheat the next day.
  8. Eat with dark, heavy bread.
