  • 1/4 c Salt pork; diced
  • 1/2 c Leek; chopped
  • 1/2 c Celery; chopped

Soak the peas overnight in a large kettle. Do not drain. Saute the salt
pork in a large pan for about seven minutes or until rendered of fat. Add
the vegetables and cook until tender. Add the salt pork and veggies to the
peas with a bay leaf, salt (optional), and the pigs knuckle. Bring to a

the soup during cooking, remove with a slotted spoon.) Take the pig's
knuckle from the pot, dice the meat and reserve. Discard bone and bay leaf.
Puree veggies in a blender. Return them and the meat to the soup, add the
sliced sausage and simmer five minutes longer.
