Split Pea Soup in the Crock Pot

Split Pea Soup brings back warm memories from my childhood. The memories are warm and comforting, just like this recipe. Every so often I enjoy making this soup and my favorite way of making it is in the crock pot. It’s so easy and fills the house with warm, delicious smells.

Stories from Split Pea Soup

The memories I have are sitting with my mom as she talked about how this soup was my grandfather’s favorite soup. She told me about sitting at a small cafe in a small town eating warm split pea. She shared this with me when I was small as we sat in a small cafe in a small town while we ate split pea soup. So now whenever I have split pea soup I think of them.
