1 Cup cold water
1 teaspoon bacon grease
1 teaspoon sugar

Preparation / Directions:

Cut slits in washed and dried salt pork. In medium sized saucepan cover meat with about a quart of cold water. Boil, covered, until meat is tender and water has evaporated down to about a cupful. Add another quart of cold water to the meat. Add peas, bacon grease, sugar, onion and hot pepper. Bring to a boil, cover again and lower fire to medium low. When peas have become slightly tender - about 30 minutes - add salt. Continue cooking until tender and tasty, usually about 20 minutes.
