Potis Mis Medi (Harvest Hot Pot)

Carole Davis


In our family we love dinners that will "WAIT". Great for football weekends, yard work weekends or any time that various family members will eat at different times.

How to Make Potis Mis Medi (Harvest Hot Pot)


  • 1In a large pot melt the butter and brown the meats, adding the flour to thicken.
  • 2Add the vegetables, salt and pepper and broth. Simmer gently for 2 hours and serve with good brown bread. (recipe follws) But you can buy bread as well. Understand that pumpernickle is not brown bread. Look for Boston Brown bread in a can if you buy. Otherwise I have included my recipe.
  • 4Move a rack to the bottom third of the oven and heat the oven to 325 degrees F.

    Spray the insides of the cans with nonstick spray and place set a deep 3-quart oven-safe pot. Begin heating enough boiling water to come halfway up the sides of the cans when poured into the pot.
  • 5In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the wheat flour, rye flour, cornmeal, baking soda, baking powder, salt and allspice. Add the molasses, buttermilk, vanilla and zest and whisk to combine. Divide the mixture evenly between the prepared cans. Cover the top with a double thickness of aluminum foil and tie securely with string.
  • 6Pour the boiling water into the pot. Carefully place in the oven and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the edges of the bread begin to pull away from the sides of the cans. Remove the cans from the pot of water, uncover, place on a cooling rack and cool 1 hour before removing bread from the cans
