“This recipe was in a Newfoundland magazine called "Downhomer", I have not made it but I do like traditional recipes. Sounds delicious. In the instructions it says " pour into a pudding bag and cook with Jigg's dinner for one hour" It also gives an alternate method which I have put into the recipe since I don't know Jigg's or what he is having for dinner :-)”
