I love traditional, regional recipes and spotted this one in a Newfoundland magazine called Downhomer submitted by Lila Young. I have not made it but it sounds very interesting even with the high fat content. They are like a Newfoundland First Nations Bannock. The pork fat is referred to as scrunchins in the recipe but that is not in the computer vocabulary so I called it fatback pork
