how can we replicate Campbells Split -Pea and bacon soup?

we love it but those cans are so small. I told the better half that we could do it so I have been challenged to do so.

1. I've been working on the cream of mushroom myself

I read the label and decided I don't need to be eating that crap. Not to mention that it doesn't taste like it used to.
I've tried with a rue and fresh mushrooms, but it was bland. I'm going to get dried mushrooms and try a broth base.

Split pea is really easy, just follow the recipe on the bag, and make sure you use cream not milk.

2. Do you have a crock pot?

That looks to me like a great place to start.

6. I've never eaten Campbell's Split Pea and Bacon soup because I make my own.

I always start any kind of ham based soup with some chopped bacon. Add a quart of cold water and a ham hock or ham ends from the butcher shop and bring to a boil. Add chopped carrots, onions and celery and let it simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes. Take the ham out to cool and add a bag of split peas. Keep simmering until the peas cook and the soup thickens. Clean all the meat off the ham bones and add. If the mixture gets too thick add water a little at a time until you get the consistency you want. It will need salt but add it sparingly. It's one of our favorite soups.

7. My recipe for Split pea soup

this is my husband's favorite soup,It tastes better the second day. You can cook it in the crock pot, but leave the potato out, as crock pots don't cook potatoes very well. Great for a cold winter day.

4 or 5 pieces of bacon fried crisp and crumbled
One small bag split peas (soak peas overnight in bowl of water) drain before adding to soup pot.
1 carrot, scrapped and chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 or 3 stalks celery, chopped
1 potato peeled and chopped

Put these ingredients in pot, add Carton Kitchen Basics chicken stock.
Bring to boil, lower and simmer for about 2 hours or until all is soft, adding water as needed.
Season with Salt, Pepper, 2 tablespoons Louis anna hot sauce. If carrot makes it too sweet, add a dash of balsamic vinegar

Once all is cooked, mash to break up the carrots, celery and potatoes, I like to leave some lumps. Add some milk to thin, adjust the seasoning and simmer on low about ten minutes. I usually serve with some fresh egg salad sandwiches or cheese toast

8. Using the immersion blender made mine similar to Andersen's

I am mentioning it because the difference was stark and the creaminess is a factor. Good luck.
