Slow Cooker Split Pea and Bacon Soup

Postby oldfart » Mon Nov 26, 2012 3:13 pm

Hi guys,

I am 5 x hours into cooking this and it already smells and tastes farking great!! :D

http://www.bestrecipes.com.au/recipe/sl ... L9077.html

Ingredients

500 g-1 kg bacon bones
1 x 375 g packet dried peas
1 cup green split peas
1 cup yellow split peas
½ cup red lentils
1 large onion, chopped
Pinch of cracked pepper
French stick or crusty bread rolls

Method

Rinse the dried peas thoroughly then soak in hot water with 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda for approximately 10 minutes. Drain and place in the the slow cooker.

Rinse the green and yellow peas, and red lentils, thoroughly before placing in slow cooker.

Add bacon bones and approximately 10 cups of boiling water.

Cook on low heat for 8 hours.

Towards the end of the cooking time, remove meat from the bacon bones. Discard the bones and return the meat to the soup.

Serve with sliced buttered French sticks or crusty bread rolls.



Recipe notes

At the end of cooking time, if soup is too thick add some boiling water until the desired thickness is reached. Tastes great the next day. This soup freezes well. I use a 6 litre slow cooker.

Ate straight from the slow cooker - absolutely yummo - but it needs watering down 'cos it a bit thick (like some people I know) ;) ).

Imo the best way to enjoy Pea and ham soup is when its thick with homemade bread (thats still warm drenched in mainland extra soft butter) /drool.

If you like it a little on the saltier side add some Bacon Chips too your soup as well.... for that added kick of bacon :)

Too farkin hot in W.a to eat soup atm but shit I'm a sucker for a great pea and ham soup :)
