Recipe For Easy Healthy Barley Ham Pea Soup
BARLEY HAM PEA SOUP
- 1 Large ham bone with some meat
- 3 quarts of cold water
-2 cups split peas (rinsed thoroughly)
-1 medium onion (yellow or white) chopped
-11/2 Tablespoons dry celery leaves
- 1 medium potato (grated or chopped)
- 1 (grated or chopped) carrot
- 1/2 cup pearl barley
- 2 heaping Tablespoons chicken soup base powder
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 1/2 can evaporated milk (ie: carnation)
- salt and pepper to taste
Use Large Oval Slow Cooker
Put ham bone in slow cooker and pour water over bone. Add onion and peas. Bring to boil on high. Once boiling turn down to low and cook for 3- 4 hours. Take bone out of cooker and separate meat from bone. Then combine together in slow cooker, meat, celery leaves, potato, carrots, chicken soup, and milk. Stir well. Keep cooker on low and cook vegetables till done. Then add the butter and coffee whitener, and pepper. Stir well again.
Before you decide to put the salt in, taste first the soup. This will give you an idea if you should add salt. The reason for this is because the ham and the chicken soup base has already salt in it. So it would be wise to taste before you add the salt.
When you make this soup at first it looks like there is not much in it. But as it cooks the barley doubles its size and the peas makes this soup thicker. This soup is very tasty and it's like a meal all by itself.
Instead of having crackers with this soup try seasoned croutons inside your bowl of soup. It tastes awesome. You also could have on the side, buttered bread or buns too. ENJOY!
