We decided to give it a go and do it ourselves... I found a really simple recipe on the net and we were off...
The ingredients are (for about 5 litres of soup):
- 750g-1kg of dried split peas;
- 1 leek;
- 250g of Bacon;
- a couple of carrots;
- one onion;
- a big "Rookwurst";
- one Celeriac root and some celery leaves;
Get a kilo of dried split peas and soak them in water.
Cut the Celeriac root, carrots and bacon into small cubes. Put the bacon in the pan, add some olive oil and let the bacon cook for 2 minutes. Then put the peas, Celeriac and carrots in a big pan with arround 3 litres of water (yep, soup for a week...), and let it boil for about an hour.
