I know many people love this soup but I didn't grow up eating this soup at all. I know your not going to believe this but I ate this soup for the first time when I was about 40 years old. I found a bag of split peas at the grocery store that had a split pea recipe on the back. Well...... I followed the recipe which seemed pretty plain. It was mainly just peas, dried onions and chicken stock. I let it simmer for about 4 hours and it was ready. I thought to myself... hummm, so this is split pea soup?? The greyish green color was a turn off for me and I have to say the taste of my soup was not much better. hahaha! I later found many other split pea recipes that were a lot more colorful and full of other tasty ingredients like carrots, potatoes, onions, celery etc. Now that's more like it!!
