Split Pea with Ham Soup (Haddad’s Ocean Café)


Ingredients

1 Spiral cut ham                      ¾ Cup of Celery                               

2 tbsp of chopped garlic                   Salt and Pepper            

1 Onion                                   Small amount of butter                    

1 Bag of split peas                            1 cup of baby carrots

Olive Oil


Directions

 

  1. Trim the meat, as much as you can from a spiral cut ham
  2. Boil the bone in a couple of quarts of water for an hour or more, add water as necessary
  3. Remove bone from water, let cool
  4. Add 1 bag of split peas to the water, let boil for 30 minutes to an hour, add water as necessary
  5. Stir occasionally to prevent peas from sticking to pot
  6. Dice ½ medium onion
  7. Dice ¾ cup of celery
  8. Two tbsp of chipped garlic
  9. Sauté onion, celery and garlic in pan with olive oil and a small dab of butter. Add salt and pepper for flavor


While sautéing, de-bone the ham, remove as much meat as possible and chop into chunks. Add ham chunks to sauté pan as onion caramelizes. (Give bone to dog, good dog!) After a few minutes of cooking while stirring occasionally, remove from heat and dump into pot with peas. Reduce heat but maintain boil for 15-20 minutes. Stir soup regularly to prevent sticking to pot. Add 1 cup baby carrots. Return to low boil for 10-15 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat and let simmer until serving, keep stirring the soup occasionally while simmering.
