Salamagundi (Pirate Stew)

    1 hour 50 minutes

    This is an old recipe that I have adapted to foods for popular now - deliberately leaving out the pigeons and the squirrels. You could add chicken or pork sausages. It could also further be adapted for your Slow Cooker, adding the peas or whatever vegetables you preferred in the last 1/2 hour of cooking. Try it, tweak it, use lamb neck instead of veal. A handy recipe when you due for a shop and have to rely on pantry and freezer.
