New England Boiled Dinner
What would you make in this gorgeous soup pot? I have an old blue cast iron soup pot that was my grandma’s. I still remember her making New England Boiled Dinner in this soup pot. Just thinking about it makes me want some now. When Grandma would ask me what I wanted for her to make on my birthday, I’d request this. I haven’t made it in a long time. I know some people make it with corned beef, but my grandma always made hers with ham.
The basic recipe she used consisted of potatoes, onions, carrots, a small head of cabbage, and ham. I’m pretty sure she just used a small pre-cooked ham or a cottage ham. After she put all of this into her soup pot, she covered it with water and season it with salt and pepper to taste. A lot of the recipes I see say to cook the meat for a couple of hours before doing the vegetables, but my grandma always did hers all together. I guess it depends upon what meat you are using. She’d boil it all for about 2 hours, and it sure smelled delicious while she was cooking it! I wish you could smell over the internet. You’d be making it too!
