Smoked Gammon can be substituted for the Salt Pork.
If the Salt Pork is very salty then reduce or miss out the Salt.
This is ideal served with poultry or other white meats.
Alternatively you can add 450g of chopped chicken, pork, squirrel, alligator etc. or a combination of meats to the rice and warm until heated through for a one pot dish.
When cooking a turkey or other bird you can simmer the neck and heart in water until very tender. Then use the stock in the above recipe instead of the chicken stock. The meat from the neck and the chopped heart is used instead of the pork liver and the turkey's liver instead of the chicken livers.
This is not a precise recipe, just use what is to hand.
