    Star Irish Fresh Pea Soup

    Irish Fresh Pea Soup
    With mint, parsley, and a little bacon, this soup is very flavorful.

    2‐1/2 pts. ham stock
    12 oz. peas
    3 strips bacon
    1 medium onion
    1 head iceberg lettuce
    1 sprig mint
    1 sprig parsley
    2 Tbs. butter
    1 tsp. sugar
    chopped parsley
    salt and black pepper
    Shell the peas, retaining the pods. Wash thoroughly and boil them in the ham stock. Heat the butter in a large saucepan and fry the onion until transparent. Add the chopped bacon, the chopped lettuce, mint and parsley and fry for about 2 minutes, stirring often. Strain the stock and return to the saucepan with the fried ingredients and the peas, salt, pepper and sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring well, allow to simmer for 30 minutes or until the peas are soft. Taste for seasoning and then add a little milk or cream if desired.
    Garnish with chopped parsley.
