Comfort food

Recommended Posts

I have already had my dinner tonight but I am making a big pan of pea and ham soup for Baden and Mum-in-law who is looking after him tomorrow (urchin doesn't start back at school until Wednesday).


I couldn't resist a bowl even though I know that it's piggy.


I've always loved p&h soup. It's warming and always brings a smile to my face.


What do other people like to eat as comfort food?

I boil up a gammon shank in a huge stock pot until the meat falls off the bone. I put enough water in to cover the shank and top up the water as necessary. Then I take the meat, bones etc out of the stock, cut up all the meat and return it to pot with a 500g packet of dried yellow split peas, 1 kg carrots, peeled and sliced, three onions and four largish leeks. I then add pepper to taste. It doesn't need salt as the shank is often quite salty.


If the shank is very salty, then when it first comes to the boil, drain the water off and then fill the pot up again and reboil.


It is yummy served with fresh bread...the breadmaker is going on over night.
