Baked Lentils

  • 1 quart lentils
  • 1 quart boiling water
  • 6 ounces mixed salt pork
  • 1 clove garlic or 1 small onion
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
Pick over and wash the lentils. Soak in cold water overnight. When you awake the next day, pour off the water and place the lentils in a stew pan with 2 quarts of cold water. As soon as the water begins to boil, the lentils will rise to the top. Take them out with a skimmer and put in a deep, earthen (made of clay) dish, with the pork and onion in the center.

Mix the pepper and salt with a quart of boiling water and pour into the dish. Put the dish in a oven heated to 350F at 350°F and cook slowly for 4-5 hours.

The lentils must be kept moist and it may be necessary to add a moderate amount of water from time to time.
