> 1 (16 oz) pkg dried green split peas
> 3 carrots
> 3 stalks celery
> 2 cups diced ham
> 1/2 cup diced onions
> 2 tbsp minced garlic
> 2 bay leaves
> 2 tsp dried thyme
> 6 cups hot water

Rinse the split peas. Peel and slice the carrots. Chop the celery. In a 4- or 5-quart slow cooker, combine split peas, carrots, celery, ham, onions, garlic, bay leaves, thyme, and hot water.
Cover and cook on low 8–10 hours, until peas are very soft.
Remove and discard bay leaves. Use a potato masher or fork to mash some of the peas. Season with salt and pepper to taste. To serve, garnish with the parsley.
