DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the meat & chop roughly into convenient pieces about 1 1/2 " square.
  • Put into a large heavy saucepan.
  • Cover with some of the water & bring very slowly to the boil.
  • When just beginning to boil, add salt & continue to simmer over a low heat for at least 1 1/2 hours.
  • Skim the scum from the surface.
  • Add a little more cold water, skim again, & repeat the process 3 times.
  • Add all the vegetables & seasonings except the peas.
  • Simmer for a further hour, skimming from time to time if more scum arises.
  • Stir in the peas, cook for a further 5 minutes, and serve very hot with plenty of pepper added.
  • NOTE: split peas can be used instead of pigeon peas.
