“I found this recipe to be one of the best for Country Captain. I love the taste of the currants mixed with the garlic and stewed tomatoes. I've been making this for some time now, but didn't realize it's like chili . . . every region has a little twist or has a favorite dish that Mom used to make, especially in the South. Enjoy.”
