What I did:

  1. Used the Bernardin proportions and switched out the bay leaf for the allspice from Amish
  2. Ingredients Used:
    • 2 lbs dried split peas(green)
    • 4 L broth
    • 3 cups carrots(prev.canned, drained)

    • 1 Tbsp black pepper
    • 2 Tbsp salt
    • 1/2 tsp allspice
  3. Method:
    • Boiled dried peas in broth for an hour
    • Add carrots, onion, and seasoning cooking for 30 min
    • Used food processor to whiz it smooth
    • Add ham and reheat so its all hot before jarring up.
  4. Processed:
    • 90min at 10lbs

Notes on this batch:

  • Green peas instead of yellow. It looks a bit weird but tastes good.
  • One jar siphoned but still sealed.
  • 2022-12-26 Tastes GREAT. A bit thicker than I expected so a bit more water could be added
