African Nova Scotian teacher and artist Wendie Poitras recalls her mother making this simple potato hash often. This version uses small, red potatoes, but peeled, cubed russets can be substituted. The savory dish is flavored with salt cod and pork scraps—unsmoked, salted, fatty pork. The hash makes a thrifty, satisfying supper.
