Salt Codfish Chowder

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup codfish, shredded
  • 1 1/2 cups potato cubes
  • 3 ounces salt pork or bacon
  • 2 Tbsp onion, minced
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 (Boston) crackers
Wash the fish and cut into 2-inch lengths. Tear these in pieces. Cover with cold water and soak for 3-4 hours.

Slice the pork and cook in the frying pan for approximately ten minutes (be patient, you rascal). Add the minced onion and cook for another 10 minutes (be patient, you rascal). Add the flour and stir until smooth. Then, stir in 1/2 cup of water.

Put the potato cubes in a stew pan and pour the mixture in the frying pan over them. Season with pepper and salt. Cook for approximately ten minutes, then take out the slices of pork. Add the fish, milk and split crackers. Cook gently for half an hour, being careful to let the chowder bubble only at one side of the stew pan.

Taste before serving to make sure it has been salted enough.
