My mouth is watering from the smell of split pea and ham soup in my slow cooker today.
An easy recipe thanks to my culinary cousin Mel.

(approx)  3 carrots, 3 sticks celery , 1 onion (chopped)
packet of split peas
ham hock
8 cups water
all in the slow cooker for 4-6 hours on high or 6-8 (or more) on low.
