Spring Eating: Split Pea Soup

Spring Eating: Split Pea Soup

On the night before St. Patrick's we had a perfect cup of split pea soup. It was green and slightly lumpy, creamy with half smashed peas, and wonderfully redolent of smoky ham bone. Pea soup, for us, is a bridge between the comfort foods of winter and the fresh greenness of spring.

The photo above was a reminder of the frozen peas we have in our freezer and the goodness of pea soup. There's no recipe attached to the photo, but we like the looks of this one:
