purple hull peas
Fresh split pea and ham soup
The 6 lbs of left over ham as been cut and portioned for the freezer, half the remaining carcass bits went into the split pea and ham soup along with a generous amount of cubed ham bits, with the big-ass hambone going into the freezer for a mid-summer soup. Almost all the leftovers are gone and for the first time in almost a week, my refrigerator is not filled with stuff to feed a crowd. It looks a little forlorn really, and you begin to understand the white despair of Bergman. Or you think you do. Or you think that you think you do. Which is ultimately pointless.
