Split Pea Soup

A family favorite...
I remember eating split pea soup at a restaurant overlooking a beautiful river gorge in Oregon.
Some of my standard recipe modifications come from that meal.
Split Pea Soup

1 pound split peas
3 quarts of chicken broth
1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup onion, chopped
1 cup carrots, chopped
3 large tomatoes, chopped
1 tsp. thyme
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
1 1/2 tsp. garlic
1 Tbsp. onion powder
1 cup chopped ham

Rinse split peas.  Add all ingredients to large stock pot.  Bring to a boil.  Boil for 15 minutes.  Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 1 hour.  Serve.
