Gourmet Soldier’s Split Pea Soup

All Soldier’s Soups are made with canned and or dried ingredients. The ingredients can be shipped to your favorite soldier for cooking in a coffee maker. These soups are also great for college students living in dorms and office workers, that are tired of fast food and want a hardy lunch. And they make great Camp Food.

Pea Soup fixings


insulate the pot

  •    Wrap the coffee pot with a double layer of foil, do not cover the bottom.
  •    Take an 18 inch piece of foil, fold it in half lengthwise and wrap it around the pot.
  •    This will help raise the temperature of the contents in the pot.

Never put a hot pot on a cold surface, put it on a pot holder or a towel.
Never use a metal spoon in your coffee pot. Always use a wooden or plastic spoon, the glass is delicate and you don’t want to break it.


cook and stir

  • Add the peas, broth, onions and pepper to the pot. Give it a stir. (wooden or plastic spoon)
  • Put a double layer of foil on top of the pot.
  • Put the pot on the burner and stir after about 10 minutes. (wooden or plastic spoon)
  • Stir every hour bringing up the peas from the bottom. (stir to make sure they all get cooked well)
  • Cook for about 2 hours, add carrots and stir well bringing up the peas from the bottom.
  • Cook for 2 hours more, until split peas are done to your liking.
  • Add the canned ham, cook until hot. (You may not be able to get it all in the pot.)


This is only 1/2 of the canned ham, so the whole ham might not fit.

Caution: Never put a hot pot on a cold surface, if you need to put it down not on the burner, put it on a hot pad or a towel.
