Pea and Ham Soup

The Pea and Ham Soup I'm cooking comes from the Australia Women's Weekly cookbook - Cook.

Pea and Ham Soup is such a wonderfully simple thing, 2 cups of dried peas, 1 chopped medium brown onion, 2 stalks of chopped celery, 2 bay leaves, 1.5kg of ham bone, 2.5 litres of water and a teaspoon of cracked black pepper. Bring to a boil and simmer for two hours.

Remove the ham bone to cool, remove the ham from the bone and chop into bite sized pieces. Return the ham to soup and serve. In my case I portioned the soup into containers, ready for the freezer.
