1 cup yellow split peas
4 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1 ham bone (with some ham still on)
1/2 cup diced ham, if you don't have a ham bone handy

salt and pepper, to taste


Soak the peas overnight in at least 1 1/2 quarts of water.

Drain the peas, and put in a large (3 qt) pot with the stock, onion and garlic. Bring to a boil for about five minutes, then reduce the heat to medium low.

Add the ham bone or ham and cook for two hours. Scrape off any ham remaining on the bone, and season to taste. Serve hot.

This is a great warmer on a cold winter day. As an option, you could add cut green beans, diced carrots or parsnip, or sweet potato. This nutritious soup is easy to serve to children.
