“Sharon White says, "I have been making this stew ever since my children were very young. It is savory and delicious, and it is quite healthy. One time, I remember having relatives over one day for supper, and I served this with crackers. Their young children wouldn't even taste it. They were used to consuming pretty, processed foods and eating at fast food restaurants. I had to make them peanut butter sandwiches instead! Sad. My own children still enjoy it very much. Fo us, it is a staple dinner that is both healthy and delicious. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!" From”
