  • 1 ham bone that has meat still on it OR 2 cups thickly diced boneless ham
  • 2 1/2 cups 1 regular bag green split peas
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 2 carrots sliced thickly
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 5 whole peppercorns
  • 1/8 tsp dehydrated dill or a sprig of fresh
  • 1 clove garlic crushed


  • Add all ingredients to a 5-6 quart slow cooker. Set on low and cook for 6-8 hrs. Soup may have to be thinned with more water, depending on how your individual slow cooker cooks--5 cups of water was about right for my cooker and produced a thick, hearty soup. If you like a thinner soup, use 6 cups water.
  • Serve with buttered croutons.
  • Serves 6-8
