Hearty Brunswick Stew

Amy Herald


This is definitely a labor of love, but so tasty and filling and so worth the time and effort on a cold winter day! It can be prepared in advance then frozen in an airtight containers for up to 2-3 months. To prepare from frozen, thaw soup, pour into pot, bring just to a boil, then simmer for 10-15 minutes.
