New England Boiled Dinner

This consists of corned beef, white and sweet potatoes, cabbage, beets, turnips, squash, parsnips and carrots. The quantity depends upon the size of the family. Eight pounds of meat is sufficient for a family of eight.


Boil the meat four hours, the beets three hours, the cabbage one and a half hours, squash and turnips three-quarters of an hour. Boil these in one kettle, all together.

Beets, carrots and parsnips should be boiled with the skin on.

Pare the potatoes, pare and slice the squash and turnip.

Pick the outer leaves from cabbage and cut in quarters.

When done, pare parsnips and carrots.

Drop the beets into cold water and slip the skin off with the hand.
