 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      Lb.           Split Green Peas -- (2 1/4 cup)
    1      Cup           Chopped Onions -- (to 1 1/2 cups)
    1      Cup           Celery -- diced
    1      Cup           Potatoes -- diced
    1                    Carrots -- shredded (1 to 2)
      1/8  Teaspoon      Worcestershire Sauce
    1      Clove         Garlic -- minced -or-
    1      Teaspoon      Garlic Powder
      1/2  Teaspoon      Celery Seed
 
 Start early (at least 4-5 hours) so it can cook all day. In a large
 soup kettle, cover peas with 2 quarts cold water. Simmer for 2
 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand. Add all other
 ingredients. Leave soup to simmer on low heat, don't boil, for
 3-4 hours Stir occassionally. When peas are tender, run 1/3 to
 1/2 of soup through blender. Leave other part of soup as it is.
 Mix blended soup and unblended soup together. Taste. You may
 want to adjust the seasonings at this time. Brandon added some
 italian spices and salt and pepper.
