  1. Place the peas in a bowl. Add water to cover and soak at room temperature, about 4 hours or overnight. Add water as needed to ensure peas remain covered. Rinse and drain. Set aside.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, brown the bacon and rind in the oil. Add the carrots and leek and sauté over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Add the broth, cooking juices, peas and bay leaf. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat until the peas are tender, about 2 hours.
  3. Remove the rind and bay leaf. Add the maple syrup. Add broth if necessary. Adjust the seasoning.

  1. I used the ham bone from our Easter ham for this soup. I personally am not a pea soup fan, but this recipe smelled so good I tried it and loved it! My family devoured it. Give it a try!

  2. Very good but do not use the bacon. It was too salty!
