French Canadian Split Pea Soup

1 1/4 cup yellow split peas
*Optional 1/3 lbs salt pork or a ham bone with meat on it
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1/2 onion, chopped
2 celery stocks, diced
4 cups water
1 1/2 tsp C&C French Canadian Pea Soup Mix

Add all ingredients to a large pot. Bring mixture to a boil and skim off any foam with a spoon. Reduce heat; place a lid on the pot slightly ajar to allow some evaporation. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until peas are tender and soup is thick, about 3 hours.

If using ham bone, remove bone, strip and chop meat, return to soup. Serve warm.
