CrockPot Pea Soup

Finally pulled the (circa 1972) Crock Pot out of storage and made some pea soup. Start with about 16oz of dried peas, rinsed and sorted...

Brown some sausage (8oz?16oz? up to you) Chop up 1 onion, 2 ribs of celery, 3 carrots...
Add about 30oz of broth, a bay leaf (and your favorite soup fixins-pepper, chili flakes, etc) and cook on low for many many hours. My recipe said 4 to5, but it was really more like nine!

Wow - 9 hours! Really?! I wonder how these things work.
Too bad I don't have room for any more appliances.

Julia-it is pretty easy, you still have to prep everything but this way you don't have to watch it on the stove...
Inna-I know it is kind of a while but there's lots of really yummy recipes and it's pretty easy :)
