REVIEW: recipe rating
Being that it's well past prime produce season I thought this might be a good recipe to try using the grocery store produce that is available since it would stew for a long time. Turned out quite delicious. I didn't modify a thing. I honestly wouldn't waste really good fresh in-season produce on this only because of the long cooking time so it's perfect for the winter months when most produce just isn't quite as good.
