Split Pea Soup Problem

Skyline Time | Dec 21, 201004:21 PM     16

I'm having problems with my soup! This was my first effort making split pea soup and the peas have not softened.

I soaked the peas overnight and cooked it for an hour and a flag. I then put the soup in the blender thinking it would be done,

The soup has good flavor but the peas have not completely broken down. I returned it to the stove and let it cook another hour but the bits of peas are still hard. Should I let it cook longer? Any other advice? Thanks!
