Prairie Kitchens - Split Pea Soup with Crubeens

Pigs have four of them. Feet. No pioneer would let that go to waste. While there isn't a lot of meat on pig's feet, it is tasty meat and the bones thicken a pot of soup.

Crubeen is the Irish name for pig's feet. This recipe includes split peas and that most traditional Irish food, the potato. Each bowl of soup is topped with croutons made from day-old bread. Now that's frugal!

Crubeens boiling in the base stock.
