  • I love making homemade soups this looks really nice thanks for sharing your recipe


  • Can’t beat pea and ham soup in the cooler months. Thanks.


  • LOVE pea and ham soup but have never tried making it. Will be trying this soon for winter, yum!!!


  • Hubby’s favourite soup, thanks for sharing!


  • This meal would be lovely to come home too, thanks!.


  • I love the flavours in pea and ham soup and it is one of my all time favourite flavours for a soup. A hearty and thick pea and ham soup is one of the best meals around when served with homemade fresh bread. Thanks for your version of pea and ham soup – most welcome.

    • The slow cooker is wonderful for hearty and filling soups with lots of flavour.

      • slow cooking sounds delicious, can’t wait


  • love it – I cook mine in the slow cooker too, have my Chrissy ham bones in the freezer too!


  • The only thing that makes this soup better is using bacon bones instead of the ham hock. A much deeper smokey flavour


  • A lovely Winter meal,love the serving with garlic bread!

    • Oooo can’t wait to try this, especially with garlic bread
