Step Into the Past: Brrr…Bear Stew
Feb 29 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
SC Botanical Garden-

Step Into the Past: Brrr...Bear Stew

We’re finishing up the meat from the big hunt in October.  Absolutely delicious in a pot of potatoes and carrots.  Of course, we throw in plenty of onions and dried greens to keep us healthy until Spring. We’re also having dried apple pie, with bear lard in the crust. Nothing makes a more tender, flavorful crust than bear lard.
