Cami's Split Pea Soup

This is a terrible picture of a delicious soup! I really liked the rich flavor of the soup. I did a few things wrong differently. I couldn't find smoked ham hock so I got regular or non-smoked I guess. I don't know enough about ham hock to know the difference. I also couldn't find green split peas at Treasure Island and since I didn't want to go to another store I bought yellow. It seems like it still turned out. Jason doesn't usually like split pea soup but he liked this. I did add the potatoes and extra ham. I didn't get the meat out of the ham hock. I just removed it once the soup was done. I still think it tastes great and will make it again. Heck, maybe I'll try it the right way!

I love the yellow color!! I don't think I've ever made anything with yellow peas. For people who don't like pea soup, yellow peas are probably a great idea because it sort of hides the fact that it's peas! I think people are probably turned off by the ugly green color.

I agree! I think I will try it with the yellow peas next time. I love "mistakes" because they usually lead to something good.
