Cottage roll

Do you know what a cottage roll is?

It's a ham and is cured in a brine.

We used to have them a lot when I was growing up. You put the cottage roll in a pot of water, along with potatoes, carrots, onions, cabbage, etc. and let it simmer for hours. It's very tasty!

I hadn't made one in a while so today was the day! Since I've become a recent fan of the crockpot, I made it in there. I'm not a fan of cabbage so left it out.

Just before it's time to serve it, I put it in the oven for a bit with a brown sugar/mustard glaze.

It was delicious and I must say, better than my Mom used to make and Mom used to do a great job with a cottage roll.

Wouldn't that be called a traditional Newfoundland dinner. Do tell are you part Newfie? Must confess to having had many of those dinners growing up. So good on a cold night.
