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

      Ingredients
      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
      Directions
      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.
