comment Split Pea Soup, but peas aren't dissolving
This is what I did, and it's exactly as you've described. Guess I panicked early... and the recipe was overly optimistic. Thanks!

@rumtscho: Recipe calls for 2 tsp. salt right at the start.

comment Split Pea Soup, but peas aren't dissolving
@Jefromi: They're soft, but I'm not sure if they're soft enough. I'm stirring occasionally, but not much. I've turned up the flame a tiny bit, too - the other veggies don't seem fully cooked, so maybe the heat's been too low and it all needs more time.

comment Chicken comes out salty… occasionally
@subt: Whole chicken. The first time this happened was with a defrosted chicken (which I thought might have something to do with it); the second time, it was fresh. I usually use fresh whole chicken.

@Orbling: goodhousekeeping.com/food/cooking/wash-chicken-0907 is the first link I found that didn't have to do with prize chicken shows :P You disagree?

Definitely haven't been washing the chicken. This is news to me - I'll look into it. Perhaps I should add - I'm talking about kosher chicken in Israel, where it's the norm. I don't think everybody here washes their chicken... I'll have to check.
