I feel for you; I've had this happen with split peas too. You probably have old split peas, and they'll never really soften. Dried beans are sometimes YEARS old when they're sold, so unfortunately how long ago you bought them is only a partial indicator of their age.

This has happened to me so many times, even after only shopping at stores I know have a good product turnover. I finally gave up and only use dried beans,etc from Rancho Gordo. They cost a bit more, but always give good results
