Crock Pot Hearty Split Pea Soup

 I tried this (from All Recipes) a few weeks ago when I had the winter blues and wanted a nice warm soup on a cold Sunday.  It was very hearty and flavorful.

Crock Pot Hearty Split Pea Soup
From: AllRecipes

16 oz dried split peas
2 cups diced fully cooked lean ham
1 cup diced carrots
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 bay leaves
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
5 cups boiling water (I used chicken broth, and used closer to 6 cups)
1 cup hot milk

1. Boil 5 cups of water or chicken broth.

2. In a slow cooker, layer the first nine ingredients in the order listed (Do not stir).

3. Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hrs (or low 6-8) or until vegetables are tender.

4. Discard Bay leaves and stir in milk. Serve.
