When the air gets crisp and I start feeling the urge to hunker down in my comfys all night, I start craving hearty stews. But I don’t always want potatoes and carrots in my stew; to me that gets kind of boring after a while. Besides, in my area, the farmer’s markets are brimming with fresh local apples and a variety of squashes. Oh how I love butternut squash!
As I was looking through my autumn recipes, I remembered how perfectly venison pairs with apples. I also remembered how easy the slow cooker makes my life. A perfect combination. So it was fate when I came across a recipe for Venison Crockpot Stew on the Queen of the Quick Meal blog. It was a guest post by Kelly Freihofer, who I’ve decided is an an excellent cook! This stew is fabulous.
: Layer these ingredients in the slow cooker and cover them with a mixture of local apple cider, real maple syrup, cinnamon and cloves. This is one of most amazing venison stews Iâ€™ve had yet.
