Crystal’s Split Pea Soup

Heat about 2 T. oil in a large soup pot. 
Chop up and add to oil:
1 onion
1/2 cup sliced celery, this is a guess, I just toss a little in
1 large carrot, sliced or cubed

Cook the veggies until the onion is soft. Then add:
3 Cups dry split peas
12 cups water
1 Tablespoon salt

Bring to boil, cover and reduce to simmer.  Stir every now and then and cook for about 2 hours.  When done, taste and add pepper if desired.

This can also be made with a ham bone, ham meat or bacon.  Add meat when you add water.
