his skin, however, flared up with eczema for the next few days, almost as bad as when we (didn't know any better and) fed him milk and/or soy-based formula as a baby. it was also some of the driest days of the year. coincidence? i suspect not. sigh. we're in no rush to try beef again.
1 kg Elk Stew meat
1 cup water
2 bay leaves
1 tsp rosemary & 1 tsp thyme
½ tsp savory
½ tsp black pepper & Salt to taste
1/3 cup hearty red wine or dark beer
3 Sweet Potatoes (or white or red)
½ - 1 cup fresh cranberries
1 apple (cored, peeled, and chopped)
Place frozen elk stew, along with water, herbs & spices into crockpot or slow cooker in the morning.
Around 1-2 hrs before dinner, add chopped vegetables, apple, cranberries, and wine or beer!
Remember that Stew is nutritional and fun, add your own favorite herbs & spices, mushrooms, any other favorite root vegetable i.e. turnips, parsnips, try John’s Hot Sauce-Peach Vidalia to taste, and/or 1 tsp maple syrup.
Make it your own. Put it on before you leave for work and get the kids involved by letting them add the prepared fruit & vegetables after school, that’s how the apple ended up in ours.
