This is a recipe for New Brunswick Acadian Poutines Rapees. This is not a recipe for fried with curds and gravy. Poutines rapees are a mixture of raw grated potatoes, combined with cooked and mashed potatoes, which are then formed into a ball, stuffed with seasoned salted pork and simmered in salt water. I am fortunate enough to live in NB, but you still don't see these around that often. I don't know why because they are so yummy. Another fine example of Canadian cooking!
