  1. If you're going to cook with dried pulses including lentils or split peas, you can't add anything acidic including wine as the acid will react with the skin and prevent it from tenderisation. Nevertheless the split pea soup is one of my favourite soups.

    By the way, the frozen or fresh peas should be left just prior to serving as we don't want to wipe the freshness during the cooking.

  2. Oh, my! Made this for dinner today; that confit is amazing! Guess I still prefer a smoked meat flavor in split pea soup, though. The confit will be great on a bun with sauce!

  3. I will not eat cooked peas .but love, love split pea and ham soup..!! Call me strange..Thanks Chef ..looks great. Making stuffed peppers in the crock pot..at work in MLK Day..or in other words ..children's dental cleaning hell day.. Ha !
    Great recipe

  4. Billy I do not eat pork, not for any particular reason, I just dont… but I still watch your recipes bc there's always something interesting & important to learn, thank you! I have a request: Could you make a 'Pollo alla Romana' please, per favore πŸ™ I saw this recipe in an Italian cook book (can't remember which one though πŸ™ and was very astonished bc my mom used to make this dish, I didn't even know it was a Roman recipe, but no wonder with her Italian roots. I've tried to find an original or similar one, but so far not much success… and also checked your blog but you don't have it (yet) 😊 Thank you and have a nice weekend

  5. Oh my good gosh Chef, split pea is my favorite soup next to a good clam chowder and this just looks amazing. I’ve always wanted to learn how to confit stuff, in fact I just recently learned that when you roast garlic in foil with S&P and EVOO that is confiting is that true? Do you have a vid that deals with just confit? I’d love to learn more. Thanks Chef. This is definitely saved. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  6. OMG I'm super excited and little intimated to try this but with the cold weather finally setting in seems like the perfect comfort soup to warm up and enjoy… Thank you for all the tips!

  7. Split Pea soup was never my favorite especially after the EXORCIST MOVIE!!! Although if Linda Blair had your soup, she would have been savedπŸ€£πŸ˜‚. Looks delicious!πŸ˜‹πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ³πŸ·β™₯️… Thanks Billy!!
