Slow cooker peasoup and pancakes

The amazing slow cooker

Thin, Swedish pancakes

Thursdays in Sweden is the day when we eat peasoup and pancakes. This tradition goes back to the 1200s -1300s when Sweden was still Catholic and the week ended with peasoup and salted pork as a preparation for the Friday fasting.
The peasoup we make in the slow cooker is slightly different from the traditional one, but tastes just as good:

1 lb split peas or yellow peas
10 cups broth water
1 lb pork or sausage
6 cubes chicken broth
1 1/2 cups chopped carrot
1 chopped celery
2 potatoes, chopped
4 pcs garlic cloves
2 bay leves
1 chopped onion

Layer all ingredients in a slow cooker in the order given, adding the broth last. do not stir the ingredients. Cover and cook on High 4-5 hours or on Low 8-10 hours until peas are soft. Serve with garlic bread and if stomach room allows; pancakes with jam and whipped cream for desert.
My apologies for the crappy photos, I never seem to have my SLR at hand so most of my photos are taken with my Blackberry. Or I start eating before taking a photo and the Kodak momen is lost, who wants to look at an empty plate? I will try to improve in the photo department, promise!

  7. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless
    think about if you added some great images or video
    clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but

    of the most beneficial in its niche. Amazing blog!
