"Didn't taste like what I am used to...." See more"
"Yummy, yummy, yummy...I ate this every day I was in Quebec City on my honeymoon and this recipe hit the spot, bringing back some great memories. It is still pretty hard to find salt pork here as well ..." See moreas whole dried peas for some odd reason. So, I used bacon instead...not the same, but closer than using ham. I will continue my quest for salt pork for the next time. Thank you Sarah for posting this recipe!"

(I ..." See morehaven't tried it without the whole peas, dried or fresh so I can't compare.) Also, I added the savory in the last 15 minutes; I've learned the flavor is much richer that way."
