Habitant Soup

Posted on

Seriously, it’s not creamed corn.

Who knew there was such a thing as yellow split peas?

Apparently, back in the day, they were all the rage in New Hampshire.  At least according to Clementine Paddleford and The Great American Cookbook.   This is  a pretty basic recipe which includes three onions and some salt pork.  Throw it all in the pot and bring it to a boil, then skim off the froth.  I really want to know where that froth is coming from.  The recipe says to simmer it for four hours.  We must have made some advances in fire or something over the years because this was done in an hour.

CP recommends serving this with Johnny cakes.  I just like saying Johnny cakes.

Eat Well and Savor.
