Habitant Soup

I have a pot of Habitant Soup (Split Pea) from Ball on the stove and almost done right now. We are going to have it for dinner. Can I freeze the leftovers? I made the full recipe for canning, but will not have that much left and don't want to get out the pressure canner for such a smaller amount. Got the dried split peas on sale for $1.25 for a two pound bag and bought two bags. Wanted to check it out then if DH likes it, will cook up the other half plus the other two pounds and can.

I don't see why not. It should freeze very well. There may be some slight separation (liquid) but that will stir in during reheating.

Thank you so much, Carol. DH really liked it and I will freeze what is left of this batch, but within the next couple of days I will cook up the remaining three pounds of split peas into Habitant Soup and can that batch. Its so nice to find something so good that the DH likes too.
