Swedish Yellow Pea Soup

Print Recipe
I never made split pea soup before in my life. I always heard of people making this “supposedly” good soup, but I never thought about it. It always seemed too hard. Boy was i wrong. This is about the easiest soup ever to make. My neighbor told me to “throw everything in the pot and cook.” I thought, what was everything? I googled this recipe of Swedish Yellow Pea Soup and it was, by far the most delicious, hearty soup I’ve ever made. The yellow peas were a bit “sweeter” to me. This is delicious and very easy. I did not use a blender because it was the perfect consistency without it. Honey Baked Ham has ham hocks in their freezer and that's what you need for the basics for this delicious soup.
