      Sometimes getting a recipe – no matter how good – to work, is like getting the square peg into the round hole, or perhaps, in Mr. Arnold’s lingo: getting a bear to sit for tea. This is good and worth the effort, but why the spices are listed before “bouquet garni,” I don’t know. Why canola oil! I would think Mr. Arnold beyond this Canadian poison. I used olive oil. Was this 2 teaspoons each thyme, oregano, and savory, or 1/3 teaspoon per spice? I chose the latter, and it worked. Moderate oven? I chose 325, but more on that later. I had problems with a proper “casserole or stock pot.” To get wine to “cover” would take over a weeks allowance (of wine), so I started with a cup of stock, but the meat floats, impossible for me to cover it…Then…the wine had so cooled the affair that 325 did not seem hot enough, so I went up to 375 to get things up to speed. Then: this “forcing through as much vegetable pulp as possible.” (There are olives in this.) Hey, use a food processor, this straining juices is too straining. (I should know: I tried.) Still, as anyone who has had tea with a bear will no doubt agree, it is worth the trouble. The olives…a stroke of something, really good.
