Pea Soup

This is my mother-in-law’s recipe, and it is simple and tastes great! It's also loaded with fiber - 9 grams per serving! I make a batch a freeze it in individual portions and bring it for lunch. :) There's no way to make pea soup look appetizing, but I went ahead and posted a picture anyway. It's an awesome soup.

1 pkg dried split peas
1 med. Onion, diced
9 cups water
1 tsp. salt
1 pork hock

Rinse peas in colander. Put in soup pot with water, onion, salt, and hock. Cook covered several hours until peas are soft (mushy).
