This simple chicken stew stars three of fall’s best crops—apples, carrots and parsnips. Serve with toasted sharp Cheddar cheese sandwiches and a brown ale.

Great canvas

Added to the original recipe 1/4 cabbage in chunks, 3 stalks celery, 1/2 turnip, 8 garlic cloves, my fairy dust powder on the chicken (salt, fresh pepper, savory, garlic powder and a light dusting of paprika) and I've let it stew oh so gently for one hour. The original cooking times didn't allow for the melding of flavors IMO. The sweetness of the apple mellowed the sulfur tasting turnip and cabbage. Not too sweet, not too strong tasting: a very delicate balance. Great with fresh bread for mopping. I will add fresh ginger next time and stick it in the stove for some crunchy roasted veggie tops. Would be even more great with celeriac! Dreamin'...

Low fat, easy, quick

My daughters loved this stew!! The apples were just lovely, and the whole ensemble was great. I didn't have parsnips though so I used celery. :)

Easy, simple, delish

I forgot to add that I also found it to be more filling than I thought it would be......I made half grill cheese sandwiches to go with it, but I think it would've been filling enough by itself.

Served it as luncheon dish with the very sharp cheddar toasts to the board of a non-profit -- an enormous hit with both the guys and the gals. Wouldn't change a thing. Served it with cold cider to drink and warmed organic canned peaches mixed with some allspice and served over ginger ice cream for dessert. Perfect autumn meal. Quick, easy and delicious.


Great soup! Shared it w/ two friends who also liked it a lot. Will definitely make it again.
