After the holidays my freezer tends to fill up with random leftovers. I found a ham hock and was inspired. This is a super easy soup in the slow cooker.
6 Cups Water – Will need more later
1lb Bag Dry Split Peas
2 Bullion Cubes (gluten free, all natural)
3 Carrots Diced
1 Ham Hock or Smoke Turkey Neck
1 Pound Diced Ham
1 tsp Garlic Powder
Start by rinsing peas and pour in the slow cooker. Add carrots, garlic powder, salt and water. Mix well and then add ham hock. Place lid on top and cook on low for 10 hours. Remove hock and mix well, pea should easily combine. Take meat off hock and toss in soup. Add more water if needed to get consistence you want. Finally add the remaining meat and heat on high for 30 more minutes. Enjoy!!!!
