Split Pea and Ham Soup
10-inch Dutch oven
8 briquettes on the lid
8 briquettes on the bottom
Cooking time: 1 hour
1 12 ounce package dried split peas
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon McCormick Grill Master Montreal
½ cup chopped yellow onion
½ cup chopped precooked ham (left over from a spiral ham)
3-4 cups water
Add dried peas to 3-4 cups water in Dutch oven. Season with sea salt and chicken seasoning. Add chopped onion and ham. Stir to mix thoroughly. Bake at 350° for one hour and allow to simmer.
Note: This provides a great tasting soup that is thick and hearty. As it simmers it gets better with age. My favorite split-pea soup.
