Directions:
In a stock pot, soak peas in water overnight. Add broth, ham bone, salt, pepper, marjoram, bay leaves and onion. Bring to a low boil, and simmer for 1-1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. Remove bone, cut meat off and return the meat to the pot. Add celery, carrots, potatoes and garlic. Slowly simmer for another hour until all the vegetable are tender and the peas have broken down. Stir occasionally. Serve hot or freeze some for later.

Personal Notes:
