Kittencal's Pea Soup With Ham Bone (Crock Pot or Stove Top)
135 mins (prep 15, cooking 120)
18 ingredients
10 servings
This soup is hearty and extremely flavorful and one that I have made many times in the past and even served to my guests with rave reviews all around! --- I make this soup using all chicken broth but if you are using the canned chicken broth, it is best to use only 4 cans and the rest water, also I suggest not to add any salt into this soup until the end of cooking --- if desired you may puree the soup after cooking and then return it to the saucepan and if you should decide to do so heat the soup again in the saucepan then ladle hot soup into serving dishes, and for a nice presentation drizzle about 1 tablespoon whipping cream in the soup but do not mix in --- you will love this soup!
