Step-by-step instructions on how to make the traditional Dutch split pea soup called "snert". Unlike the American variety, this is a thick soup full of vegetables and pork. A classic winter dish, it's commonly served with pumpernickel bread and cured, uncooked bacon.
Please note that I am not giving any ratios or amounts. I think all of the ingredients are essential, but, for example, you can add more onions if you like them, use less meat if you prefer and so on.
