Canadian Pea Soup

1 lb Dried yellow peas
1 tb Butter
1 lg Onion, chopped
1 tb Salt
1 lb Salt pork
12 c Water
1 ts Dried savory
Pepper to taste

Place peas in a colander; rinse under running water. Put peas in a large stockpot; cover with cold water and allow to soak overnight. (If using split peas, there's no need to presoak.) Drain.

In a large pot, melt the butter and saute onion until softened, about 2 minutes. Add peas, salt, salt pork, water and savory. Bring to boil; cover and simmer for about 1 1/2 hours or unntil salt pork is tender. Remove pork; chop and turn to soup.

Continue simmering soup until peas are tender, about 30 minutes longer.

Remove 2 cups peas from soup and process in food processor; stir back into the soup.

Adjust seasoning and serve.

Serves 6.
