This sounds great! I make split pea soup too. I use chicken broth instead of water. When done I taste the soup then add salt if needed.

I love making split pea soup. Have found that adding a pureed can of sweet peas to the soup adds more flavor!

I made split pea soup today! almost exact as this one.
except i dry sauteed the hock for a bit after scoring it. then added a bit of chix stock. let it cook a bit. then added a chopped onion and lots of celery leaves and some bay leaves. let it go for a bit. add the rest of the chix stock and water and some hot sauce and pepper and split peas. let it simmer for one hour. add carrots and let simmer another 1/2 hr. then i add some chopped canadian bacon to warm. yummy

Yup, it is getting to be that time of the year. Soup is on. Will be making split pea soup, lentil soup, and black bean soup soon. Right now it is in the 80's hot and humid here so will wait until it feels like fall again. lol
