Wash and pick over peas. Soak overnight. Sauté bacon and onions in a large pot until soft but not brown. Add peas, carrots, chicken stock, seasonings, and ham bone, cover, bring to a boil. Turn heat to low and simmer for about 3 hours. Lift out bone and bacon slices, remove any pieces of ham from bone and set aside. Add sugar, butter, ham pieces and cider vinegar. Taste and adjust seasoning, and cook gently again until ham is heated. Serve with a nice crusty French bread.
