- Ready In:
- Equipment 1 large stock pot 2 pudding bags (The amounts listed above below are based on serving 5 people.) When planning to make Jigg's Dinner, the salt beef and the split peas should be soaked overnight to remove the excess salt.
- The next day, dump out the water in which the salt beef was soaking.
- Place the beef in the stock pot and put enough water in just to cover the beef.
- After an hour of soaking, test the water.
- If it is extremely salty, dump out that water and soak the beef for another hour.
- If the water is fine, fill up the pot with water and set it to boil!
- The split peas that have been soaking overnight, must be drained.
- Then, place the peas in the pudding bag (again make sure to wet it), tie it properly and drop in the boiling water.
- Both of the puddings should take close to two hours.
- Now comes the count down for the vegetables.
- The following is a guideline of cooking times for each of the vegetables: Cabbage 40 minutes (1 hour and 20 minutes into the boil).
- Turnips& Carrots 30 minutes (1 ½ hours).
- Potatoes 20 minutes (1 hour and 40 minutes).
- At the 2 hour mark everything should be cooked and it's just a matter of scooping and sorting the vegetables.
- Slice the Dark Molasses Pudding.
- Mash the pease pudding.
- Then it's time to eat.
- HINT: serve with roast of chicken, turkey or beef.
- Pickled beats, stuffing& gravy along with home made buns or bread Whatta Scoff!
- Left over veggies fry up great next day as hash.
I make Newfie Dinner for every cooked dinner occasion..its a tradition!! My Family is all from Newfie. I however do not soak my salt beef or my peas overnight.I put the salt beef in the pot and bring to a boil then taste the water,if its to salty I will drain off some water add more and reboil. My peas are put into my bag dry and tossed in with the salt beef in the morning around 10:00-11:00am.I let it boil all day and in the afternoon around 4:00pm I start the Veggies...dinners ready by 5:30. Very very Yummy dinner and the house smells amazing!!!
This if fantastic, thanks :o) My hubby is a Newfy, and he told me about this "Jiggs Dinner", so I made it for his birthday, and not only did he love it, but said it was totally authentic, and he (and his mom who lives in Newfy-land) were impressed that I went as far as to make it with Peas pudding AND Figgy Duff... He said it was totally authentic. Thanks!
