    1       lb           Pork leg

   This Finnish pea soup can be made well in advance. You
   can double or triple the recipe and freeze it in
   useful quantities. Malla Karhusaari also suggests
   reducing the cooking time by using a pressure cooker
   or microwave to prepare it. Rinse peas and soak in
   cold water in large port for 8 hours or overnight.
   Bring peas and soaking water to the boil, reduce to a
   simmer and cook for one hour or until peas begin to
   soften. Add pork and continue to simmer for two to
   three hours, until peas and meat ar thoroughly cooked.
   When meat is tender, remove it from pot, discard skin
   and bone, cut meat in cubes and return to soup. You
   may need to add more water to pot for desired
   consistency. Season with marjoram, mustard, salt and
   pepper. Heat to blend flavors and serve hot.
   Serves 6.
