Directions:
I usually save some ham from the meal that I prepared. You can decide how much ham to put into the soup according to your taste. Place the left over ham bone in the water with salt, pepper, onion, and bay leaf. Boil for about 45 minutes. Remove the ham bone and let it cool. Remove the bay leaf. Add the chicken broth , carrots, and split peas to the soup stock and boil until the soup becomes thick and the peas are all cooked and soft. Cook the potatoes separately for about 15 minutes. Add the potatoes and the cut up ham to the soup and warm up.
