“My mother has been making this stew since I was a little kid. It grows on you until one day you crave it! Adapted from a Heinz ketchup recipe. I do prefer Heinz in the recipe as well. Stew is good both with and without the wine if there is none on hand, just increase the water a 1/4 cup. This freezes very well too.”
