Pressure cooker split pea soup with ham recipe
I made this tasty recipe in my Crock-Pot Express Crock multi-cooker. As you all know, this is my new favorite kitchen appliance.
The Express Crock combines the functions of a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a steamer, a stir fry / browning and 8 built-in preset buttons that allow you to cook a variety of dishes.
In other words, this thing does it all. It is an absolute staple in my kitchen and has gained a permanent place on the counter.
When it comes to split pea soup, I'm a new convert.
This warm, comforting soup has become one of my favorite news!
What are split peas
This is a question I asked myself before trying them for the first time a few months ago.
Split peas are field peas and are grown specifically for drying. The peas are peeled and then split on their natural seam, which helps them cook faster. You don't need to soak split peas to get a quick, creamy texture.
