Dried split peas are cooked with a ham bone, carrots, onion and garlic covered in water. Season with plenty of freshly ground black pepper.
I used to make this in a restaurant where I worked. I have modified it for the home cook. You definitely need curing salt for this recipe. When you buy the pork butt, ask the butcher for the curing salt. Mine just gave me the salt I needed. I make this about twice a summer. It’s the hit of any BBQ!!
