Civil War: Lamb Stew

Civil War Recipes: Irish Stew

Slowly but surely I am still working my way through my Civil War Recipes cookbook.  This time I thought I give something savory a go.  This recipe reads super easy, but it goes against everything I want to do when making stew.    Normally when I make a stew or anything that is braised in…
