1 pkg. split peas, rinsed & sorted
3 cans chicken broth
4 cups water
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1 bay leaf
1 & 1/2 Tablespoons celery leaves
diced, uncooked turkey bacon
Combine all ingredients in a large kettle, and place over high heat. When it starts to boil, reduce the heat. Cover and simmer until done, stirring occasionally to keep it from sticking. I think it takes about an hour and a half. You will know when it is done, because it will look like pea soup. Remove the bay leaf before serving.
