Jiggs dinner

Phyllis cooked us Jiggs dinner in her cabin.
Jiggs dinner is another traditional meal with salt meat, boiled vegetables, peas pudding, and dumplings, a cross between a British sunday lunch and a stew. The slat meat is a traditional way of preserving meat to last for the winter and the vegetables are the staple of the crop in Fogo Island's gardens.
