Crock Pot Split Pea Soup

7 cups water
1 lb. dried green split peas
2 cups diced onions
1-1/2 cups carrots, peeled and diced
1 cup diced celery
2 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
3 chicken bouillon cubes
1-1/4 lb. ham hocks

Put all ingredients in a 5-1/2 quart or larger crock pot/slow cooker.

Cover and cook on HIGH heat setting for 6 hours or on LOW heat setting for 12 hours until peas are very soft and fall apart.

Remove ham. When cool enough to handle, cut meat off the bone, dice and return to soup.

Discard rind and bones.

Serves: 4
