Holly's New England Boiled Dinner

A few years ago, my husband Tom found this recipe in a Marjorie Standish cookbook that I had purchased. Years ago, Marjorie Standish used to write a cooking column for the Portland Press Herald here in Maine. Tom did change the recipe and I am posting his version. This could not be easier, but it does take about four hours from start to finish. This is the kind of recipe that you want on a cold day, that's why we made this yesterday. It's cold here right now and we had a craving for all of those wonderful root vegetables.
