This yellow split pea soup has fresh ginger to give it a bright flavor. Use the best ham you can find to get the most flavor.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

Equipment: 5- to 6-quart slow cooker
