Irish stew

The epitome of comfort food: Irish stew.  Few ingredients – mutton, onions, potatoes, maybe carrots, parsley or thyme.  Dates back to at least 1800s, when it was made slowly over an open fire.  Still heartily enjoyed today.  The economic importance of sheep for wool/milk meant only old animals ended up in the cooking pot.  Then & now – good food, good business – waste not, want not
