Green Peas and New Potatoes, New England Style

“The nicest vegetables that grow are young peas and little new potatoes . . . .”


  • 1/4 pound salt pork
  • 2 small onions, peeled and minced
  • 8 little new potatoes
  • 2 cups cooked peas
  • 1 cup heavy cream


1. Cut the pork into slices and fry until crisp. Remove pork from pan and add onions. Cook until delicately golden.

2. Scrub but do not peel potatoes. Cook, covered, with pork and onions in as little water as possible for about 20 minutes.

3. Remove pork slices. Add peas to potatoes and onions. Pour cream over vegetables and simmer until blended.

    What a great recipe! I grew up on this and it’s one of my favorites today. How we looked forward to the first peas coming out of the garden!

  • The heavy cream took away from the taste of the veggies. Also, if making this- DO NOT cut up the salt pork, you’ll spend all your time fishing the little pieces out.
