    Jana Steinhagen's Note:

    This is a recipe from Northern Germany. If you have ever wondered what to do with those big german hot dog things called Bockwurst... here is an idea! This Stew is vegetarian until the Bockwurst is added, which is right at the end, so it is a great one for pleasing everyone!
