 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8       c            Water
    2 1/4   c            Split peas, dried (1 lb)
    1       md           Onion
    1       t            Salt
      1/4   ts           Pepper
    2                    Carrots, chopped
    2                    Celery, chopped
    1       lb           boneless smoked ham
   
   Heat water and peas to boiling.  Boil for 2 minutes,
   then remove from heat and cover.  Let sit for 1 hour.
   
   Add ham (whole), onion, salt and pepper.  Cover and
   simmer until peas are tender, about 1 hour.
   
   Remove ham and trim meat from bone.  (I usually use 1
   lb boneless smoked ham) Cut ham to 1/2 inch pieces.
   Stir ham, carrots, and celery into soup. Cover and
   simmer until veggies are tender, about 45 minutes.
   
   Like I said, it freezes well and is a very convenient
   side to a sandwich or whatever.
