"I love this Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup! In the morning put the ingredients in your slow cooker, go about your day, and by dinner time you'll have a delicious, velvety pot of split pea soup you'd be proud to serve even to guests! Recipe: Rinse 1 lb. dried split peas and arrange in an even layer on the bottom of your slow cooker insert. Medium dice 2 carrots, 2 celery stalks, & 1/2 a yellow onion. Arrange veg. mixture in another even layer on top of the peas. Add 4 c. chicken broth, 2 c. water, 1 bay leaf, & 2 fresh parsley sprigs. Place 1 large hamhock on top. Cook on high for 5-6 hrs or low for 8-10 hrs. When done, remove hamhock. Using an immersion blender, blend until desired consistency. You can discard hamhock or use the meat to mix into the soup. Enjoy!! #soup #splitpeasoup #comfortfood #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #thisisfall #homemade #f52grams #cozy"
