1 ham bone with some meat still on
8 cups water
2 cups dry split peas (can substitute lentils)

Directions:
In a large soup pot, bring all the ingredients to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for several hours. Stir occasionally. Peas will absorb water and cause broth to thicken. Remove the ham bone from the broth, remove the meat from the bone, returning the meat to the broth.

Like most homemade soup this is best made a day ahead and rewarmed and served the next day.

Serving sides include One Rise Monkey Bread or Red Lobster Biscuits.
