Catholic Recipe: Codfish
In Brittany, France, where all the housewives are busy on Christmas Eve with preparations for the holiday, they do not bother with fancy cooking. Their "pièce de résistance" is plain, inexpensive salt codfish.
Soak cod in cold water for about eight hours. Drain and cook in fresh water for 10 or 15 minutes. Brown onions in butter. Add codfish and potatoes. Cook five minutes longer. Add salt, pepper, parsley and vinegar.Recipe Source: Cooking for Christ by Florence Berger, National Catholic Rural Life Conference, 4625 Beaver Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50310, 1949, 1999
