Soak peas in water overnight. (Quick-cooking dried peas and beans do not require overnight soaking.) Add ham, onion, celery and parsley. Heat to a boil; cover and simmer 4-5 hr., until peas are tender and liquid partially cooked down. Season to taste with salt and pepper. For a smoother soup put through a sieve. Dilute as desired with additional milk or water. Serve hot.
