  Warning Tip not a Warming Tip!

We all know that cooking at altitude takes a bit longer because water doesn't boil at 100 degrees Celsius any more - something to do with air pressure.

So here's me deciding to cook pea and ham soup - it takes about 4 hours all told, as opposed to about 2 hours max back home.

So far, so good? Soup turns out fine, absolutely delish, even if I do say so myself!

HA! One minor problem - split peas are a member of the legumes and if not cooked at a high enough temperature can leave traces of a certain enzyme which can cause flatulence PROOP! PROOOP!

You have now been warned!
