Winter time means hearty soups. This hearty split pea soup has flavorful turkey necks or flanken cooked with carrots, celery, onions and barley to make the most warm and comforting soup. Serve alongside Savory Onion Crescents – YUM.
In a 4-quart pot about three-fourths full of water, bring split peas, barley, and meat to a boil. Lower heat and stir. Cover and simmer for one hour. Add beans. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer an additional hour, adding water as needed.
Add vegetables to pot. If soup becomes too thick, add water to desired consistency. Cook about 45 minutes longer. Noodles can be added, if desired, 15 minutes before cooking is done
Stir soup frequently to prevent scorching.
