DIRECTIONS

  • Freshen salt cod by soaking it overnight in cold water to cover.
  • Drain, place in a stewing pot, and cover with fresh water.
  • Bring to simmer with low heat.
  • Check to see if the fish is still too salty - if so, drain, add fresh cold water, and bring to simmer again, and drain.
  • Fry salt pork in stewing pot until crisp; remove fried pork scraps and reserve for garnish.
  • Cook onion in pork fat until tender.
  • Add potatoes, carrots, water, salt, and pepper and cook covered for about ten minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
  • Add corn or hominy, heated milk, and freshened salt cod.
  • Bring chowder to a simmering temperature, but do not boil.
