"This is a very simple straight forward recipe. The end result is a lovely tender,loaded with flavour stew. Lamb is so delicious any way but heavenly in a stew. The original recipe was on About.com Southern Food this recipe has some changes by me. The original recipe said cook for 8-10 hours so use your own judgement but I find that 6 hours has everything tender and not over cooked. If you wish add potatoes and parsnips at the same time that you add the turnips and carrots. If you like a thicker gravy add a slurry of 2 tablespoons flour mixed with a 1/4 cup water or a tablespoon corn starch with 3 tablespoons water. I like to sub the water with white wine"
