      1/4   lb           Salt Pork, diced

    3       x            Med Onions, peeled & sliced
    2       ts           Salt
    3       lb           White fleshed Fish  *
    2       c            Scalded Milk

   *  Use 3 - 3 1/4 pounds fresh skinned haddock or other
   white-fleshed fish with bones in it.
    Fry salt pork to render all fat in a heavy kettle and
   then remove. Add potatoes, onions, and 1/2 teaspoon
   salt. Cover with hot water and cook over medium heat,
   covered, 15 minutes, until potatoes are just tender.
   Do not overcook.  Meanwhile, cut fish into large
   chunks and put into another saucepan. Add boiling
   water to cover and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Cook slowly,
   covered, until fish is fork tender, about 15 minutes.
   Remove from heat. Strain and reserve liquid. Remove
   any bones from fish. Add fish and strained liquid to
   potato-onion mixture. Pour in milk and leave on stove
   long enough to heat through, about 5 minutes. Mix in
   butter and pepper. Serve at once.   Serves 4 to 6.
