How to Make Scotchy's New Egland Boiled Dinner


  1. in a big turkey roasting pan add all the ingredients and put enough water in to cover all but the top of the ham. Cover and put in oven at 325 for about 4-5 hours. take out and serve.
  2. I prefer it with liquid like served in a bowlplate. Eric prefers it without the liquid added.
  3. Stay tuned for the sequel to this dish made from leftovers to create the best split pea soup ever and save all the leftovers including the broth for the split pea soup.
