All I can say is 5 stars all the way. The beauty of the recipe was that I raised all the main ingredents with the exception of the celery.
When I arrived home from work, The aroma in the house was nothing short of pure comfort food cooking. My son had open a jar of stew, reheated it and baked some biscuits.
It was great right from the jar. I did add some bay leaves while canning.
I only canned 4 jars. I will be unthawing some roasts ( I'm not a big roast fan) to make some of this stew.
Thank you for the recipe.
