This was Grandma Jan's recipe. A dish she fixed every winter. This is great recipe for left over ham.
So simple and easy.
1 bag split peas (dry), rinse well then cover in water in a pot 4 to 5 inches above the peas. Add ham hocks. Salt and pepper, celery seed, medium onion and carrot. Cook on high till a small boil then cook on low until the peas turn to mush.
