That sounds really good, Carol, but when I first glanced at the recipe I
did a double-take. Eyes and mind are fading, I fear. I read "1/4 pound
bacon", "1/2 pound peppercorns"! I thought, my God she did mean spicy! I
had a good laugh all to myself afterwards.

OMG! That would kill a horse! Crash was inspired with the idea to add
pepperoni, and it really makes the soup. It's good without it, too (I love
the spices), but the pepperoni was missing from the first batch. It just
seems more complete now.

I like the idea of pepperoni. Definitely worth a try. But 5 carrots
is 4 carrots too many, for me. I like the split peas to dominate.
Just a matter of personal preference.... -aem

The pepperoni was Crash's contribution, and it's a great one. I originally
called it Chunky Split Pea Soup, but it's spicier than it is chunky. This
is the first and only split pea soup that I've ever actually enjoyed. I
just plain wouldn't eat it before. I hope you like it!
