    We had some rain here in the desert and the wind picked up for a last bit of winter before the summer heat. So...we decided to do a double cooked ham (no rub or glaze) in MES with hickory for a nice meal and ham sandwiches for the week. Then make good use of the ham hock!
    Simple recipe:
    - leftover smoked ham hock, onion, celery, pepper to taste, water in a pot simmer "for a while".
    - strain to leave broth only
    - add split peas to broth at low simmer and stir. Peas to broth to stirring = soup consistency. My wife likes it thinner, I'm more of a thick soup fan. So we make it thin!
    - add chopped up leftover ham
    - eat soup and give your good dog the leftover hock!

    Thank you for looking!

    I should have cleared up this issue before tying the knot. I live in a divided home!

    I LOVE split pea and ham soup!!!!  I like it thicker, Miss Linda doesn't care for it at all, so lucky me, I get to do it my way.

    POINTS for a great soup.

    Thank you Gary! It is delicious! My wife loves it even more than the smoked ham so SWMBO must definitely be obeyed on this one!

    Thank you Sir. . . I think this is for me? We love using the ham bone! It brings a ton of flavor to all kinds of soups.
