There is no need to adjust your set. Yes, you have read artificial ham flavor. It even sounds disgusting. Let's start from the beginning. We cooked a beautiful bone-in ham for New Years day. It was from the 'Meat Star' Dittmer from Dittmers Wurst Haus. It was scrumdiddlyumptious . Today we have a wonderful bone to make split pea soup. This is one of my favorite soups. Ms. Goofy is not partial to this green pea concoction, so I will enjoy it all week. I asked her to pick up a pound of dried split peas from our local Wally-Mart. She brought back this package of Hampeas. When did split pea get the name make over? After a brief observation of these fancy new dried legumes we noticed that this package came with a ham flavor packet. In fact, right in front, in plain English, it claims ARTIFICIAL ham flavor. Yuck!!! Luckily it came in a sealed package and I was able to remove it from the peas.
The split peas soup is delicious. It is flavored with the most flavorful "Real Deal" ham bone. It will go perfect with a ham sandwich and a visit to the couch to watch more football.
