Pork and Celeriac Stew
Mashed Potatoes with Leeks

Cooking time: 100 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

         It's a bit of work to get the stew cooking, then all is easy.  Celeriac vary in size: we'll use a bit more in the risotto on Sunday, and if you still have some left, add it to the pasta on Thursday.

Pork and Celeriac Stew

Total time: 1 hour 40 minutes
   The spices used in this are from a recipe for Wild Boar Stew, but work very well with domestic pork. The juniper berries give it a wintry, woodsy flavor.  If you have the time, marinate the pork in the red wine for a few hours before cooking. This makes enough for 2 meals.
