PEA SOUP AND DUMPLINGS
1½ pk. split peas
ham bone, with extra ham
piece of salt beef, cut up
diced carrot and turnip (cut small)
potatoes (about 6) cut into ½ inch pieces
2 chopped onions
I used onion powder, and if you are not using salt beef, add salt to taste.
2 cups flour
2 tspn. baking powder
2 tspn. sugar
2 tbsp. margarine
Boil the ham bone, ham, salt beef and peas for about 1 hr.
Add carrot and turnip and potatoes, and boil for an extra ½ hr.
If making dumplings, add about 15 minutes after veggies, and cook 15 minutes, without raising cover.
I prefer to make 1 large dumpling and cut it up after it’s cooked.
To make dumplings mix all ingredients together and add water to make dough, knead, adding a little flour til it’s no longer sticky
cut into as many pieces as you want dumplings, rounding the dough and dropping it into the soup
I recommend cooking everything on medium heat..pea soup likes to stick on and burn on high heat.
