Just about everyone is New Brunswick has heard of the
traditional Acadian taste treat know as "poutine", but
it remains a mystery to most people other than Acadians.
Here's one of the more popular ways of concocting the dish
that have been reminding Acadians of their mothers' kitchens
for more than a century.

  • 1/2 lb salt porch
  • 10 potatoes, grated
  • 4 potatoes, mashed
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Water

Boil potatoes for mashing.  Grate the remainder.  Remove as much water as possible by squeezing them through cheesecloth.   Mix together mashed & grated potatoes.  Salt & pepper to taste.  Boil salt pork in water for 5 minutes.  Cut into small cubes.  Form potato mixture into balls resembling snowballs.  Make a hole in each ball with your finger and fill with a spoonful of meat mixture.  Close hole, coat lightly with flour.  Gently place in a large pot of boiling, salted water.  It is important that the water is boiling constantly during this process.  Simmer for 2 or 3 hours.  Serve hot with salt & pepper or as dessert with sugar & molasses.
