Slow-Cooked Split Pea Soup
Perfect Soup in a Bowl!

Cook in the slow cooker/crock-pot on low heat all day—and you come home to the most delicious, smooth pea soup to be savored with a slice of bread and butter!

Don't forget you can use yellow split peas too—for a change—and this recipe lends itself to lentils just as easily, though I do have a lentil soup recipe for you to try.

When this pea soup is ready, there will be NO crunch to the peas. They'll just melt in your mouth. I love making this soup—it tastes so good—and it is very easy on the pocketbook. This will serve about 4 hungry people, or six if you're having a sandwich to go along with it.

MUST DO: Get some of your freshly sliced bread and treat yourself to some real butter. Spread generously—dip gently—chew slowly, and savor the taste and experience!

Any leftovers? It thickens overnight in the fridge, so add a little water to it if you wish to make it a little thinner.
