1 or 2 cloves of garlic, minced

1/2 tsp. fresh pepper
1 1/2 qts. hot water

Layer ingredients in slow cooker, pour in water. DO NOT STIR. Cover and cook on high 4 to 5 hours or on low 8 to 10 hours until peas are very soft and ham falls off bone. Remove bones and bay leaf. Serve garnished with croutons.

Delish!! Made it exactly as called for in recipe (except the bay leaf--was out!) and it was perfect. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I omitted the bay leaf, parsley, garlic and celery and it tasted just fine. It was a little thin, so next time I would try using 5 cups of water. Overall a good, tasty soup and easy to make! I used cubed ham and would make it again.

For the ham I bought the ham that has on in the package which is about 2 cups but I found I would have like it with 2 pkgs. Really thick so 7 cups hot water would do the trick. Great soup - will make again

Followed it to the T and it came out great. Better than any split pea from a can. Chopped the carrots and used sliced ham after 4 hours on high, stirred it up and wow.

Didn't have all the ingredients but was very easy and very nice. I used grated carrot. Didn't have any onions but used chives instead. Not keen on celery and didn't have it. A great budget saver.
