  • 1 lb boneless honey ham
  • 1/4 white onion
  • 10-15 baby carrots
  • 8 medium cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 Tbsp savory
  • 1 Tbsp sage
  • 1 tsp ground cayenne red pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground white pepper


  1. Dice onion, carrots, and garlic.
  2. Cut ham into 1/2″ cubes.
  3. Rinse and sort through peas to make sure they are clean and free of rocks, etc.

  4. Bring 8 cups water just to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat to medium and add all ingredients.
  6. Simmer covered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
