 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       lb           Dried yellow peas
    1       tb           Butter
    1       lg           Onion, chopped
    1       tb           Salt
    1       lb           Salt pork
   12       c            Water
    1       t            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.
