Like most good soups and stews, we started with some onions and bell pepper. We let this cook down a bit and get nice and caramelized in a little vegetable oil, salt and cayenne.
Union Market on Sunday where Red Apron Butchery has set up shop. They have a great looking array of meats including porkstrami, and a variety of sausages, so we're definitely planning to go back and try their other offerings.
So the sausage went into the pot to cook up with the onions and peppers. Since we had some collards from the share, we also added these to the pot to cook down, and add a little greens to the dish.
We hope you had a great Mardi Gras too, and don't worry, we won't be fasting, so get ready for more delicious meals to come!
