“This is a delicious stew,” says Carma Blosser of Livermore, Colorado. “The sausage and turnips give it really special flavor.” A slice of crusty bread makes a great mop to clean up any remaining broth!
With fresh sage and apple, this dish is tasty, easy and done in a flash. The recipe says garlic butter, but I keep a jar with three cloves of garlic covered in olive oil and use that instead. The garlic oil is delicious for salads also. —Lorraine Caland, Shuniah, Ontario
