Hearty Split Pea Soup

I received this wonderful cookbook as a Christmas present from a dear friend. I love soups and I love Taste of Home magazines and cookbooks!
This book is full of wonderful soups, chilies, chowders and mixes. I will be sharing quite a few especially during this cold winter weather.
This split pea soup is so wonderful. (the soup is a pretty green, I just do not take pictures well...sorry.{: ) It will warm you up on the coldest of days!
1 bag (1 pound) dry split peas
8 cups water
2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
2 large onions, chopped
2 medium carrots, chopped
2 cups cooked ham
1/2 cup chopped celery
5 tsps. chicken bouillon granules
1 tsp. dried marjoram
1 tsp. poultry seasoning
1 tsp. rubbed sage
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. salt
In a dutch oven or soup kettle, combine all ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1-1/2 hours or until peas and vegetables are tender. Enjoy!
