Stewing is cooking food in a measured amount of liquids. Once the food has boiled it is allowed to simmer. Sufficient amount of liquid water or stock should be added for a stew of the right consistency. The saucepan or pot used should have a tight fitting lid to avoid loss of nutrients. Use gentle heat or cook slowly to avoid hardening proteins and damaging food texture and flavour.


Suggested Foods for stewing

–  Tough cuts of meat, fruits like pears and pineapples, vegetables like carrots and peas, smoked fish
