This is a lovely rich, flavorful "stew" that is really delicious. The consistency is more of a "stoup", sort of halfway between soup and stew. I made this exactly as posted, except I did not peel my potatoes. I wasn't sure what to do with the cooked bacon, so I diced it and added it to the stew before serving. I didn't need to add much salt, since the bacon gave it enough salt. Thanks for sharing this unique recipe. Made by a fellow Tasty Tester for ZWT9.1Reply
