      Very nice stew that we enjoyed. I skipped the sugar, lowered at amount of salt and omitted the pearl onions. The one onion was plenty for DH. I would have liked adding celery but the peas were an interesting and tasty addition of something green which I always like in a stew. This makes a lot, I made 4 servings and got enough for 6! I need to say that the aroma is a delight. When DH came in it was near the end of cooking time and he started sniffing and making "mmmmm" sounds. Made for PAC. Spring '10.
