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
1 tsp. sugar
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.
