So full of chemicals, they actually frighten me. Although I long to, like the olden days before anyone knew any of this stuff.

I will only use herbs spices and vegetables for flavoring. I know I know the spices are processed - but at least they grew out of the ground somewhere!

I make a homestyle stew like my mother did, which has only pepper and salt as flavoring, meat, carrots, potatoes and onions.

Its absolutely delicious.
I get the dehydrated soup starters. All organic etc. I like herbs and dried spices etc. There's one brand I like a lot called Frontier's Soups. For nights where I don't have time to cut/chop, saute, simmering etc, these starters are awesome.

Substitute a can of beer for 12 oz of water to your stew.

I make one this time of year with pork butt and winter squash. Cut about 2lb pork into 2'' cubes and brown in olive oil in a dutch oven, remove meat and saute diced onions in the pot, add some mashed garlic, 28 oz diced tomatoes (I use Muir Glen fire roasted), a winter squash peeled and cut into 1" chunks, a cup or 2 of frozen corn. Add water as needed and return the meat and cover, cook on low for 2.5 hours. I usually add some paprika and of course salt and pepper
