Is there a difference between the two?
Carrots - locally grown obviously
Celery - ditto
Bacon, pancetta or some other such pork based product
Self raising flour
You don't need me to tell you how to do it, such is the joy of a casserole/stew. You can make it up. Saute the things that need to be sauteed, chuck it all in a pot, cover with stock, wine and the liquor from soaking the dried porcini and cook in a low oven for hours.
For the dumplings, add 50g of suet to 100g of SR flour, season added chopped thyme leaves and a spoon full of mustard powder. Form into a ball and pop on the top of the casserole for the last 20 minutes with a lid on.
Flowers tomorrow, and details of our Christmas evenings....finally.
