* Here's a dish that will be perfect for cooler weather. Margaret Buerhaus of Essex sent us a recipe for Brunswick Stew. It's for W. Armour Jenkins of Lutherville.

Brunswick Stew 1 large stewing chicken, about 6 pounds

3 potatoes peeled and cubed

2 large onions, sliced

1 10-ounce package frozen okra or 2 cups fresh, sliced

2 cans whole kernel corn or 4 cups fresh

1 28-ounce can tomatoes

1 10-ounce package frozen lima beans

1 tablespoon sugar

Boil chicken in a large pot with lots of water for 45 minutes or until tender. Remove skin and bones. Cut chicken into bite size pieces. Add strained broth to chicken along with remaining ingredients. Use just enough broth to get desired thickness for stew. Cover and simmer for one hour, adding more broth if needed. Stew may be cooked in crock pot on low setting for four to six hours or on high for two to four hours or until vegetables are tender.
