Place peas in a colander; rinse under running water. Put peas in a large stockpot; cover with cold water and allow to soak overnight.

In a large pot, melt the butter and saute onion until softened, about 2 minutes. Add peas, salt, salt pork, water and savory. Bring to boil; cover and simmer for about 1½ hours or unntil salt pork is tender. Remove pork; chop and turn to soup.

Continue simmering soup until peas are tender, about 30 minutes longer.

Adjust seasoning and serve.
