"I live on good soup, not on fine words."
- Moliere, Author
I loved split pea soup as a kid and this is the flavor that I have been craving for some time. I donít really know why I didnít work on this recipe years ago. It is easier to soak the beans overnight and then you donít have to boil them and let them stand for an hour. Simply soak overnight, drain, use.
Serve this with an Egg Salad Sandwich and you have a wonderful meal for a cold night.

|1 cups||split peas|
|1 tsp||olive oil|
|2 ounces||prosciutto ham (diced)|
|1 medium||onion (diced)|
|fresh ground black pepper (to taste)|
|1/4 tsp||ground nutmeg|
|2 Tbsp||dry sherry|
Place the olive oil in a 4 quart sauce pan over medium heat. Add the diced ham and cook slowly until the ham is not quite crispy. This will take about 5 minutes.
Add the onion and increase the heat slightly. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onions begin to be soft. Add the split peas and stir well.
Add the water and salt and cook for about an hour over low-medium heat. Stir occasionally.
When the split peas are slightly soft to your taste remove the pan from the heat. Remove about 1 1/2 cups of the soup and puree the remaining using a stick blender or blender. Add the 1 1/2 cups of split peas back to the soup and stir.
Add the nutmeg and sherry and cook for another 5 minutes.
