Take a large piece of salt meat and soak in cold water overnight. Next, place fresh water in the pot and boil salt meat on the stove with a small amount of salt pork for 45 minutes or longer. While that is boiling, prepare your vegetables. Cut turnip in small pieces, peel carrots, potatoes and prepare cabbage. Add vegetables to the boiling pot, beginning with turnips, then carrots, cabbage and lately the potatoes, allowing 15 minutes between each vegetable. Cook until the potatoes are done. If cooking for your own family, a cup of peas placed in a cloth and tied to a string may be hung in the pot to cook with your salt meat dinner before the vegetables are placed in. They should be soaked in cold water first, though.
