    wOw I couldn't find the 5 cups of water in the ingredient list either? I did find it in the directions though, probably because water isn't really an ingredient, or is it?

    Very bland. The recipe on the split pea package is much better. I am not sure, but I think it is the water. I won't be making this again but, if I did, I would use all chicken stock for the liquid.

    The ingredient list doesn't include the 5 cups of water used in the instructions. Martha is my go to recipe source, seasonings and texture are often a choice for the individual and their customers satisfaction. All the info here is awesome, great recipie, as is, great recipie to customize. Wonder if adding tomato would be awesome Please correct the ingredient list, Martha can't fail me, not my Martha

    1/4 inch cubes for croutons? Sounds tiny and not what is iin the photograph.

    Totally delicious, didn't change a thing. The croutons added a nice buttery, crunchy flavor and the lemon juice added a great "zing" to the finish. Loved it!

    This is one of the best soups I have ever tasted. And very easy to make. I used a smoked ham hock and uncured, fully cooked ham from Whole Foods since I didn't have any ham leftovers. Otherwise, followed directions as written. I didn't salt till the end to make sure it didn't turn out too salty. Next time I may add 1 cup less of water to make it a little thicker. I make a lot of soups and this one will stay on my list. Love it.
