1 tablespoon butter
2 cups onions, chopped
2 stalks celery, diced

2 cups chicken stock
2 cups water
1 pound split peas
1 pound ham steak, smoked, cut into 3/4 inch chunks
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried thyme

Recipe Directions for Southern Split Pea Soup with Ham

  1. Heat butter in pressure cooker. Stir in onions, celery, water, split peas, ham, bay leaves, and salt.

  2. Lock lid in place, bring to high pressure over high heat. Maintain high heat for 10 minutes, turn off heat. Allow to decompress naturally. Remove lid and bay leaves.

  3. Add thyme and simmer until flaor pervades the soup. Stir well, taking care to blend in the peas that have sunk to the bottom. Add additional salt to taste, as much as 1 teaspoon, if needed.
