Oddly enough about three days before you posted this recipe I had been craving some split pea soup, something I haven’t had in years. Then this popped up in my Facebook news feed and I was ecstatic because I still had ham in the freezer from Christmas dinner. This recipe was AMAZING!!! I cooked this with the ham bone in the crock pot and used just under 1/4tsp of ground ginger (I didn’t have any fresh) and I ended up cooking it on low for about 10hrs because I was gone all day but it still turned out wonderful. Thanks… Read more »

I have made this many times and everyone in the family enjoys it. Some times I add in garlic powder and we always enjoy our bowls with cheddar cheese on top and crackers or bread on the side. This is a keeper for us. =)
