Swedish Yellow Split Pea Soup with Ham
Place split peas in a medium bowl. Wash with cold water until the water runs clear; drain and spread in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker.Advertisement
Add broth, water, onion, carrot, celery, ham, ginger and marjoram to the slow cooker (see Tip). Stir to combine.
Cover and cook for 5 hours on High or 7 to 8 hours on Low. Season with pepper.
Tip: For easy cleanup, try a slow-cooker liner. These heat-resistant, disposable liners fit neatly inside the insert and help prevent food from sticking to the bottom and sides of your slow cooker.
To make ahead: Prep carrots, celery, ginger and dice ham; refrigerate in separate containers.
