First thought is OLD peas?? Have had same results with legumes of unknown age?? Whenever I have a nice ham bone, totally torn...split pea or navy bean soup?!? I NEVER soak split peas?? Just put bone and veggies (onion, celery, carrots) in big pot of water and dump in a bag-o split peas. results are what we call"exorcist" soup... thick and creamy.
