Slow Cooker Split Pea and Ham Soup

Yum!  This is Miss A's favourite thermos lunch!  She loves to open this up at school and munch on it.  Also a favourite on a Monday night, which is music night.  I put it on in the morning and come home to house smelling like soup.  A loaf of fresh soda bread and some home made soup, too good to be true!

It is coming up to Miss A's birthday, so my next post will be about allergy-friendly cakes.  Stay tuned!

2 cups split peas, rinsed
1 ham hock, smoked
2 carrots
2 celery sticks
1 leek
herbs and spices
10 cups water

Put all ingredients into slow cooker, adding water last.  Just add enough water to cover, between 8 and 10 cups.  Add lid of slow cooker and cook!  Just before serving, remove ham hock, and cut off the meat, adding back to the soup.  Serve with your favourite bread.  Hmmmm.
