|Royal Fern with Pork|
1 pound raw bacon
1/2 pound royal fern or any other fern, if dried, then soaked for ten minutes in hot water, then drained and slivered
1 Tablespoon lard
2 large shallots, peeled and minced
3 sliced fresh ginger, minced
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground five-spice powder
1. Slice the fresh bacon into one-quarter inch pieces, and put it on the lard, with the meat on it, all on a heat-proof deep plate.
2. Spread the greens over the meat, and then sprinkle the shallots, ginger, cinnamon, and the five-spice powder over all of it.
3. Put this in a steamer, and cover the steamer for half an hour over boiling water. Then uncover, and serve, thickening the liquid, if desired with a cornstarch-water mixture.
