    Nancy tossed the Christmas ham bones in the DO this morning. The bones simmered/boiled for over 3 hours. She added split peas and a bunch of ham ends from the last batch of loins that I sliced up. It smells like my smoker in our kitchen today.




    These ends are intensely smokey and flavored with Pop's brine.


    I added twice this much to the pot.


    Now we are cooking it down until it starts to thicken. I'll post a finished picture when it gets done.

    You know what Adam? I'm not one for pea soup either. My wife and 1 daughter just love it. I was saving those ham end pieces from slicing so I ended up getting involved with making it. Pea soup is like liver, if you like it you really like it.
    Thanks Merv!

    Ya know Todd, I never had split pea soup till in the service, the same with lentals. BUT anything with that much cured pork would have to smell wonnderful. I boil some hocked also today figured I'd do enough for the bean tomorrow and the peas for New Years.

    But it smells totally awesome cooking! I bet your house does also.

    Great job my friend.

    Looks great Todd! I have a ham bone or two in the freezer just wanting to become soup. I've been holding out to make some navy bean soup. Every time I think about it I don't have the time to prep the dry beans. Then I forget!
