1 cup shelled split peas
3 cups water
1/4 pound piece ham
1 stock cube (beef or chicken)
1 small onion
1/2 green bell pepper
1 cup diced pumpkin
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt


Wash peas and soak overnight. Discard old water and add fresh together with chopped ham. Cook until peas begin to soften. Add remaining ingredients and cook over low heat until pumpkin is soft. Put all ingredients through a blender and serve immediately or keep warm in a double boiler.

If lighter soup is desired increase water to 4 cups. Serve with cheese toast or fried bread.
