Comments for Turkey Stew
Now that the summer heat has turned to autumn fog, it's time again for stews. I love spending the day slowly putting together a stew. Ingredients I love to use include: ground turkey, butter beans and tomatoes. Since this year's crop of herbs is thriving, I was able to spice it completely with what Sean and I have grown.
For this first stew of the season I used zucchinis, an ingredient I've only recently started to enjoy. I had to eat so much zucchini as a child that it was hard to want to cook with it as an adult. Ian was the same way. We started by chopping it up into very small pieces and cooking it into sauces where the taste was fairly well disguised by the other flavors. Now we are bolder with how we use zucchini but my inner child is still sticking her tongue out at it.
Sean managed to eat half a bowl of stew. He isn't a fan of tomatoes and we cook with them all the time. For this stew, I didn't pierce the tomatoes so most of their juice stayed inside and didn't get into the stew. He managed to eat all the pieces of the stew but didn't want the broth. I didn't make him eat any tomatoes.
Harriet, on the other hand, loves tomatoes, so she got a tomato, chopped up. She also loves zucchini. So I mostly gave them to her.
