Nova Scotian Hodge Podge

Rated as 4.37 out of 5 Stars

"This is an old favourite vegetable stew from Nova Scotia. Is typically made in the fall as gardens are just harvested. It is important that the freshest veggies are used. This recipe very much lends itself to tinkering by adding different vegetables and quantities."
