Or to give it its full name: pork, dried plum, and apple stew. Ahem. Okay, okay – dried plums are more commonly known as prunes, but please don’t let that word scare you! They are sweet and yummy, and go so well with the rich mix of flavours in this dish (recipe here).
I’ve been seriously slacking with this blog, but also with cooking in general. My poor freezer is looking quite bare – something I’m in dire need of remedying before I embark on the madness that is NaNoWriMo, whereupon I will have no time to cook – barely enough time to eat, with all the writing! 😉 – and need some healthy food stocked up.
This stew has been a family favourite for years now. It can look a little daunting – lots of ingredients, some (mustard powder?!) a little niche, but it’s not really all that difficult, and is both pretty healthy and very, very delicious! Not to mention that it’s a little different from so many of the things that I make. However, like most of my fav recipes, a big batch can be split into 4 or 5 portions and frozen for those moments – just home from work, or mid-NaNo… or both!
