yeahright, Thank you for asking, It would be my pleasure my friend.
So here it is, but wait however, I have to say that I get weird about cooking my soup. Meaning, that there is a quick way to making this soup, and
then there is the right way if one has the time on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, know what I mean? You can also crock it, but it takes a very long
time in a crock- pot.
The key to this soup is cooking the beans (split pea's) and veggies down until they fall a part. When this soup is done right, it ends up in a
condensed version, so you can add water as you go throughout the week. If you like stew, no need to add any water whatsoever. Just make sure to get
some fresh bread with butter cause it finishes this Soup like a charm.
Just in case, You would want to crock it for 8 hours atleast! On low for about 5 hours, and then turn it on high the last 3.
1 pound of split peas
1 flat steak package of cooked ham. (you can use about 3/4 of any lunch meat ham if you can't find those flat steak hams)
1/2 a package of cooked (by you) bacon. Then chopped up real small. ( 1 or 2 tablespoons of bacon grease left over as well. which is optional, unless
you're not concerned about bacon. We use uncured organic bacon, so I don't worry as much about a little bacon grease.)
1 12 ounce beer ( I use a good lager like Sapparo or heineken)
2 cans of Chicken broth
4 cups of water
very important, 3/4 of a package of chopped organic baby carrots
1 1/2 chopped maui style sweet onions, or any white or yellow onion. (Place the other half left over into the center of the pan, not chopped.)
1/2 Tablespoon of olive oil (poured into and rubbed around the bottom of the main soup pan. (to prevent burning)
1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 of Tablespoon of rice vinegar (or whatever will do)
4 cloves of garlic
2 celery stocks or (1 tablespoon of celery seed.)
1 Tablespoon of Yellow curry powder
1 Tablespoon of Coriander
1/2 Tablespoon of Black pepper
1/2 Tablespoon of White pepper
1 seeded Jalepeno pepper (optional for those who like it spicy, even though ou really can't taste it as long as no seeds)
So, Those are the ingredients. I will follow up with the directions on how to apply them next. ~$heopleNation
