MAKE HAM AND SPLIT PEA SOUP!
Ham bone with some meat still on it
16 oz bag dry split green peas
2 potatoes, diced
4 celery stalks, diced
20-30 baby carrots, diced
1 small onion, diced
6-8 c chicken broth
Left over ham cut into bite-sized pieces

Put the broth and ham bone in a large soup kettle and set on high heat.  Begin chopping vegetables and ham and add everything to the soup pot.  Cover and bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for about an hour.  Remove ham bone and let cool slightly.  Remove any usable meat from the bone and add to soup.

Serve with a little fresh ground black pepper!

WHAT ABOUT GLUTEN?

Dry split green peas are naturally gluten free but they are subject to cross contamination in processing and packaging.  A soak and a rinse will help.  Arrowhead Mills is one brand that specifically states it is Gluten Free.

EASY AND DELICIOUS!
