Prep

Cooking

Serves

Ingredients

  • 1 x 500g packet JC’s green split peas
  • 2 Lamberts ham hocks
  • ¾ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 2 celery sticks, finely chopped
  • 8 cups water
  • 2 fresh corn cobs, with kernels cut from the cob

Method

1. Place half of the water in a large-capacity slow cooker.

2. Add ham hocks and the rest of the ingredients, except the corn, then pour over the remaining water.

3. Cook on high for 4 hours or until the hocks are tender and the meat falls from the bone easily. Stir occasionally.

4. Remove the hocks and bay leaves. Remove the meat from the hocks, chop coarsely, and place back into the soup. Add corn kernels.

5. Taste and season more if necessary.

6. Cook on high until the peas are “mushy” and soft, and the soup is thick. Serve with garlic bread or other crusty bread.
