    Derf's Note:

    Try this hearty soup for supper with chunks of rye bread to dunk. All you'll need to finish a comfort food supper is some apples and cheese for dessert.

      I just made this soup last night and it was wonderful. The smokey flavor of the ham hocks adds just the right touch. For the base, I added 6 cups low fat chicken broth and then added 6 cups water. I also added thinly sliced Kielbasa sausage during the last half hour, for my husband the carnivore! We dunked bits of Foccacia in ours.

      This soup is just like the soup my Mum made when I was growing up, love this sort of smoky flavour in soups, and also the pea and lentil texture. I used 2 ham hocks as the two of them weighed 3 1/2 lbs. This made a huge pot and is very filling. Delicious!

      We've never tried anything like this and were happy with the results. We also replaced 6 cups of the water with fat free chicken broth . Instead of the ham hocks, we used 99% fat free ham steak. Very yummy...and very healthy!! Especially if it is a cold day outside.
