How do I know about Brunswick Stew Virginia Style? Back in the ’70s, we went on one of the very few family vacations that didn’t include dogs (My Dad raised Goldens and showed extensively), probably to try to instill some sort of family bonding combined with patriotic zeal to renew our faith in Family, God, and Country.
Sometimes the universe aligns and this Brunswick Stew Georgia Style came about as a result! We just made a big pork shoulder roast (Momofuku’s Bo Ssam, to be exact) and had leftovers. I had just come across a couple of recipes for Brunswick Stew. And my sister from Georgia called and said she was on her way. Well, that sealed the deal! Brunswick Stew, it was!
While Fava beans have set the standard for many Crostini spreads, here the common (and much cheaper and so much easier to deal with) Lima bean stands in. Combined with garden peas and mellowed with a touch of cream, these bright, fresh Lima & Pea Crostini are somewhat unexpected. The exceptional taste is springy, even in the dead of winter. These Lima & Pea Crostini are a breath of fresh air.
