Best Ever Split Pea Soup w/ ham

All the fresh herbs really make this soup rich and savory!

1 pound dried split peas
5 carrots peeled and chopped
1 onion chopped
3 cloves garlic minced
1 sprig rosemary
1-2 thyme sprigs (take leaves off)
3 bay leaves
8 cups chicken broth/stock
1 ham bone (try and have it with a lot of meat left)
extra ham - chopped

Put all ingredients in a stock pot / simmer 2 hours. Remove ham bone, and take meat off, chop. add back to soup.
