so i was trying new recipies to get better at cooking and i want to get more involved with other styles of cooking and it was good and filling but i feel like it lacked seasons? we had to add so much different flavores to get it to taste like something. but idk if thats just cuz i am not familiar with this type of food.

I'm a student of the "KISS" method of cooking so I didn't add any spices. The picinic pork was salty enough and this let the true flavors of the veggies come through. If you would like it less salty I recommend you boil the ham/pork for about ten min. rapid boil then change the water, as this will render out much of the salt.

This is a very simple dish with LOTS of flavor just as it is. I've seen many versions that add a lot of seasoning but I don't add anything to it. Many would think it comes out bland but it really doesn't because the smoked pork has a deep salty flavor and the vegetables are tasty as they are. Being from New Hampshire, a version just as simple as this one has been a staple in our home for generations - so much so that I remember my great grandmother making it for Sunday Dinner when I was a child. Tried and true - a GREAT one pot meal you won't regret making on a cold night :)
