Fall Recipe

When I think of fall, I think about Thanksgiving and Christmas a time to praise the Lord. I also think about a favorite dish that we eat during the fall and winter. I am not sure about other parts of the country but in the south we love to make and eat brunswick stew. It is said that this stew originated in Virginia, the state I was born in, around 1828. Churchs and fire depts. around here will have big fundraisers where they make and sell this stew. They are usually made in a huge cast iron pot over an open fire. However, when I make mine I use a 16qt stock pot and a modern stove. The stew is made with a variety of meats with chicken and beef being the most common. I recently sampled a stew with chicken, beef and pork. Typically the stew has potatoes, tomatoes, lima beans, peas and corn. I have my husband's grandmother's recipe that my mother-in-law taught me to make. If anyone is interested in the recipe, I will be glad to email it as I feel it is rather long to put into a blog.

I hope everyone is still enjoying the Open House. Remember you can still shop after the open house is over.
You can shop with me through Monday Oct. 26th at the sale prices on either my etsy site or my website.

I live right out of Richmond in the village of Midlothian across from the Mason't lodge and the Mason's and everyone else makes Brunswick stew at their outdoor cooking pit. I had never had it until I moved here!!

Do you love it? I can't wait until I finish with some wholesale orders and can get a whole day to make some for my family.
