Swedish Yellow Pea Soup

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1-3/4 cups dried yellow peas
4 cups water
1 tablespoon salt
10-1/2 to 14 ounces lightly salted side pork of 1 pork shank
1 pinch ginger, thyme or marjoram
Water

Instructions

Rinse the peas, sort and let soak in the water with salt for 10-12 hours, covered in a Dutch oven. Bring the peas to a boil in the same water they soaked in. Add 1 more cup water. Cover and cook rapidly for a few minutes. Skim off shells floating on the surface. Add pork whole, or cut it into cubes and add it after peas have simmered 30 minutes more. Allow soup to simmer 1 to 1-1/2 hours, or until peas and pork are tender. Add more water if soup is too thick. Season with salt, ginger, thyme or marjoram to taste. Remove pork, cut in cubes and return to soup. Serve.
