I just chop up a large onion, heaps of sliced carrot, salt and pepper, and just boil away slowly for an hour or two. Chuck in a couple of handfuls of yellow split peas if you want pea and ham soup but cook until peas have turned to pulp.

What stock do you use for your base? I use either chicken or vegie from Maggi. Chop up an onion, split peas, a bit of garlic, a bay leaf, and maybe a carrot. I don't add too much salt as I find the stock does that but I do add pepper to taste. When the bones are cooked I take them out and chop off the meat and put it backto serve. .

I use bacon hocks rather than bacon bones... . not usually as salty and more meaty

I always use the kings soup mix, add a finely diced onion, grated carrot, silverbeet, celery, bacon bones, bacon bones and mashed pumpkin (the mashed pumpkin helps to thicken) and chuck the whole lot in the crockpot. I never add salt until the end, and vary rarely do because the bacon is salty.

I boil up a bacon hock the day before making soup. I then scoop any flat that may have come to the surface before adding diced celery and sliced leeks. I then grate carrot, pumpkin, swede, potato, ku-
mara. Sometimes I also add a ptk of kings old fashion soup mix.
its always delicious.
For a change I sometimes boil a chicken and add the above vegies
