   Rinse peas.  In a 4-quart saucepan, combine peas,
   water and salt. Bring to a boil; remove from heat and
   let soak for 1 hour. In a 10-inch nonstick skillet
   heat oil over medium-high heat; add bacon and cook,
   stirring frequently, until browned.  Stir in onions
   and carrots and cook, stirring occasionally, until
   onions are translucent; add to peas in saucepan and
   stir to combine.  Add remaining ingredients except
   parsley and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low,
   cover, and let simmer, stirring occasionally to
   prevent mixture from sticking to bottom of pan, until
   peas are softened and mixture thickens, about 45
   minutes. If soup becomes too thick, add up to an
   additional cup of water.  Serve each portion sprinkled
   with fresh parsley.
   Makes 4 servings.
