Split Pea Soup Time

 Its soup time... Today it was Split Pea soup, one of my favorites.
Easy to make and ever so good.
I usually start with a ham hock, but I only had panchetta in my freezer so that does me fine.     I fried it a bit and added it to the pieces of ham that I had cubed. Set aside. Poured about 1  1/2 cups of dry green peas into enough water to cover them. Added a sprinkling of salt ( not too much if  not sure of how salty the ham& panchetta are ) add a bit of pepper & celery seed, you can add more salt more later if necessary.   I also usually use a few chopped up carrots but today  used parsnips..And about 3/4 cup chopped onion.  

 Cook those together until peas are tender.. add the ham & panchetta bits and continue cooking until soup thickens about 20 minutes on medium heat.  Now doesn't that look good?  How about adding some crusty sour dough bread...

This makes a nice quick supper and leftovers are yummy too..
Bon appetite!
