Grandma’s Pea Soup
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + soaking Cook: 2-3/4 hours
Makes16 servings (4 quarts)
This is very close to the soup that my mother made when I was growing up. One pot fed 5 really hungry kids easily! I followed this recipe, except I added small diced potatoes and no sausage. Mom used to serve this with cornbread, and I know this sounds strange, but I would drizzle a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar on top of my bowl of soup. ?? This is the best EVER!

Flavorful and hearty. Would give 5 stars if the recipe called for chicken broth. And if you have one, use your potato ricer for the spaetzle. Someone asked about dried whole peas which are readily available in the store. If you don't find them with the usual dried bean/pea suspects, look in the international aisle. Goya Foods offers whole peas, and you can also find the yellow variety from Goya on Amazon.com.
This is very close to my Recipe the only difference is I use chicken broth and add water as needed and use potatoes instead of dumplings. I’m going to try the dumplings next time I also use smoke sausage bc that’s what I have on hand
I have not yet made this soup, but it sounds INCREDIBLY delicious, and very close to my mom's old fashioned homemade pea soup. I remember that she always used a ham bone with plenty of meat still left on it, and she also used 'dried YELLOW peas' (which I can't find anymore). I'll go with the green peas, since I have no other choice. However, please clarify what you mean, when you call for 'dried whole peas' (the first ingredient in this recipe). I'm very anxious to make this soup!
This is the best flaoved Pea Soup I've made. I will be replacing my long time trusted recipe with this one--yes it's that good!
Excellent. I didn't put in the smoked sausage, had a huge ham bone with lots of meat. Also didn't do the spaetzle. Lovely colour with the carrot. janet
