1 tablespoon Four Fathers Jalapeno Hot Sauce

- Place ham bone in a 4-qt. slow cooker. Add peas, celery, carrot and onion. Combine water, stock, Four Fathers Hot Sauce and mustard; pour over vegetables. Cook, covered, on high 5-6 hours or until peas are tender.
- Remove ham bone from soup. Cool slightly, trim away fat and remove meat from bone; discard fat and bone. Cut meat into bite-sized pieces; return to slow cooker. Stir in remaining ingredients. If desired, top with additional minced parsley.
TIP IN THE KITCHEN - For a less chunky soup, puree in batches in a blender or food processor.
