This booklet is tiny, pocket-size, in fact.
It contains a traditional recipe for Irish Stew, which I'll share with readers.
There is a veritable multitude of variations for Irish stew, depending on what was handed down by ancestors; however, the simmering of the lamb or mutton arouses my curiosity. Would this produce exceptionally tender meat?
I have yet to attempt this recipe myself.
