Fried Salt Pork with Cream Gravy

  • 1/2 lb salt pork
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 tsp flour
  • Cold milk
  • Pinch of pepper
Wash the pork and trim off the rind. With a sharp knife, cut in thin slices. Spread in a large spider and cook over low heat until the fat is well fried out. Increase the heat until the slices begin to color. Transfer to a warmed platter and keep hot.

Pour off most of the fat, leaving about 2 Tbsp in the pan. Stir the cream into this. When it comes to a boil, thicken slightly with flour blended with a little chilled milk. Season with pepper. Let it boil up once.

Pour the gravy over the pork.

Stewed Leg of Lamb with Green Peas

  • Leg of lamb
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Flour
  • Slices of bacon or salt pork
  • 4 quarts green peas, shelled & washed
Wash the leg of lamb and wipe dry. Season with pepper and salt and dust with flour.

Cover the bottom of a stew pan with the slices of bacon or salt pork. Fry them until the fat is extracted, then take the crisp fat out, leaving in the clear grease. Lay the leg in this and brown both sides and all around. Add enough cold water to nearly cover the lamb. Simmer gently for 45 glorious minutes (be patient, you rascal).

Put the shelled peas around the leg, keeping just enough water on them to simmer but not boil them. Cook gently for half an hour or until the peas are thoroughly cooked but not broken. When done, dust a very little amount of flour in them, just sufficient amount to make the gravy stick a little to the peas.

Serve the leg on a hot meat dish with the peas around it.


  • 1/2 lb salt pork, chopped

  • 6 green peppers, cut small

  • 4 small summer squashes, sliced
  • Milk
Fry the chopped salt pork with the sliced onion and green peppers. When brown, add the corn and sliced summer squashes. Cover with milk and cook slowly for 2 hours, without stirring.
