    All peas never got tender

    Posted by Allene Sammons on Jan 1st 2024

    I’m a huge fan of these soups normally. This one not so much. I cooked in crock pot for 8 hours. Peas still crunchy. Bumped up heat to high for an hour - still all not cooked. Yes I have a great crockpots! It’s an all Clad that I use all the time. * Anderson House response: We're so sorry for your frustrating experience. Slow cookers are a little tricky. On this soup, we do recommend 5+ hours on high to soften the peas.

    I popped this in the crockpot this am with a leftover meaty ham bone. 4.5 hours on high and we had a great lunch ready to go. We all work from home and this really hit the spot!

    Split Pea Frontier Soup

    I just wanted to reach out to say thank you for creating the Split Pea Soup starter. It’s absolutely delicious and I can’t wait to buy more from my local store (Kudzu Bakery in Mt. Pleasant, SC). I used Kiolbassa brand bacon from San Antonio in the preparation of the soup as per the instructions, and it was fabulous. I’m glad I found your product and I’m excited to try more of what y’all offer.

    Simply excellent split pea soup!

    Bought a single package of this at Jungle Jim's International Market in Cincinnati just to see what it was like. Excellent! I used smoked turkey instead of ham or bacon. Came back to the website today and bought a BUNCH of various soups. Keep up the quality, great-tasting products!

    It's my son's 10th birthday, and your Split Pea is his favorite flavor! I just put in a huge order for my mother-in-law's birthday (she turned 80), and she was thrilled!
