 Today, little missy is making mommy crave some split pea soup...

EXCEPT i lost my recipe cards..i'm sure the sewer habitants are enjoying them, as my son flushed them down the toilet :(...

And when i google "crockpot split pea soup" i end up with all these recipes that call for carrots/celery/etc.

I just want basic split pea soup with ham.

Anyone know a basic recipe? I want to throw this in my crockpot

My DH's grandmother makes it with just the pea's and some ham. Here is her recipe

SPLIT PEA SOUP  

1 pkg. dried split peas
3 med. to lg. potatoes
1 tsp. celery seed
2 or 2 1/2 lbs. grated ham
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. garlic powder

Cook all ingredients in large pot with 4-5 quarts of water. Cook about 4 or 5 hours, stirring often. Soup will thicken. When done, add 2 cups of milk and 1 stick of butter.
