I went to a dinner back in the early 90's near Windham, Maine. You paid a fee to a local organization, usually non-profit, and you could get dinner, buffet style. The people who invited me were long-time Mainers, and they called it something like a "community dinner" or "church dinner". I forget the specific term, but it was particular to Maine or the region. Does anyone know what it is?

That's it! Now I remember. It was called a bean supper! (I remember swallowing a big piece of pork fat during the dinner because I was too embarrassed to spit it out in front of the Windham couple.)

That's probably salt pork. Don't spit it out. Just take smaller pieces with beans next time, Did you get brownbread too? Finestkind!

Question blackbread & pink water?

Okay, so

1. Is "blackbread" what we call Pumpernikel down here in Maryland?
If so, love it!

2. I am almost afraid and embaressed to ask , but what ingredient is used to "pinken" the water for hot dogs?

Can anyone please enlighten me ?

Brownbread goes with Saturday night beans and is made with molasses and raisins then boiled/steamed in a coffee can or Crisco can. Excellent stuff and a mainstay. I don't vouch for this recipe but the end product looks good. I use my mother's. Is it lunch time yet?

The dye in the red dogs turns the water pink.
