  Dried split peas 1 Pound (1 Package, Green / Yellow Colored, Norwegians Prefer The Yellow Variety)
  Water 8 Cup (128 tbs)
  Lean salt pork 1⁄4 Pound (1 Piece)
  Carrot 1 Large, pared and diced
  Celery stalk and tops 1 Large, diced
  Green onions and tops 5 , trimmed and sliced
  Salt 2 Teaspoon
  Freshly ground black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
Directions

1. Sort peas, place in a large, heavy kettle, add water and salt pork. Bring slowly to boiling over moderate heat; cover and let bubble gently 1 1/2 hours.
2. Add carrot, celery, green onions, salt and the pepper; cover and simmer 30 minutes. Uncover, turn heat to lowest point and simmer very slowly 1 to 1 1/2 hours longer, stirring occasionally, until quite thick (it should be about the consistency of gravy). Taste for salt, adding more if needed.
3. Ladle into soup bowls and serve.
