Holiday Traditions

Every family has their traditional meals, for some it’s a deep fried turkey, others have grandma’s special kugel, and don’t forget the feast of seven fishes. For me, the holidays will always mean my father’s Austrian Peasant Stew.

As a present to all my readers, I want to share this recipe, because this time of year is all about spreading joy. I hope that this becomes a tradition with your family.



Take a pail of water and wash it clean. Then boil it till it is brown on both sides. Pour in one bean. When the bean begins to worry, prepare it to simmer. If the soup will not simmer, it is too rich, and you must pour in more water. Dry the water with a towel before you put it in. The drier the water, the sooner it will brown.

Serve hot.
