Slow cooker split pea and ham soup

One of my favorite soups.

Slow cooker split pea and ham soup Simply Filling or 7pp

1 pkg (16oz) dried split peas
2 cups of lean ham or back bacon diced
1 c carrot diced (didn't have any this time)
1/2c onion diced
1 cup of celery diced
2 garlic cloves minced
2 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp dried marjoram
1/4 tsp dried thyme
ground pepper
6 cups of low sodium fat free chicken broth (you can use water) add more if you want it thinner
salt to taste at the end of the cooking time

Put all into a slow cooker on low for 8 hours. Make sure to stir every now and then as the peas become thick on the bottom :)
