Pressure Cooker Southern Split Pea and Ham Soup


I always save some of the Baked Country Ham for this soup. The flavor of this soup when cooked in the pressure cooker is fantastic. Making the Split Pea Soup in the pressure cooker makes a very smooth soup. The peas dissolve into a puree, without putting it into a blender and no soaking the peas the night before. This is a Southern Split Pea and Ham Soup that has been passed down in our family and adapted to the pressure cooker.
