  1. Wash and sort peas.
  2. Combine peas, water, salt, pepper, bay leaf and thyme in a large pot or Dutch oven.
  3. Press cloves into onion, and add to pot (if using a ham hock you may wish to add it now so it becomes more tender- but NOT the smoked sausage, as they split if overcooked).
  4. Bring mixture to a boil, then lower heat, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until peas are tender, about 1 hour.
  5. Remove the onion and bay leaf.
  6. Puree soup through a coarse sieve or in batches in the blender (be careful not to burn yourself!); return mixture to the pot.
  7. (I like to leave a little bit not pureed for texture).
  8. Add potatoes, ham, sausage.
  9. Leek and celery.
  10. Simmer uncovered about 25-35 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  11. Taste for seasoning and garnish soup with chopped parsley before serving.
