My 81 year old father talks about the "Spout" his mother made when he brought my mother home for the first time to meet the family. I've been looking and looking for a "Spout" recipe the way he tried describing it. This MUST be it. Thank you so very much. Looking forward to surprising him with this. That dinner may have been the last time he had it back in 1956. It's the only time he speaks of it. M. Angers, Lewiston Maine

just a thought.....your recipe is pretty bang on except. I trim fat off pork and put on bottom of pot...(2) I put mine in the fridge for no less then 10 to 15 hours....(3)I also make a braid out of flour and put it around the rim of the steel pot I cook the pie in and put on top firmly (4) slow oven....200f....8 hours...this should be a 5 star....

You've got ingredients but no method . What about all thise spices ? Do you put each layer with all those spices ? Do the veggies have their own layer ? Can't make it until I know .
