This recipe has been a favorite of mine since my lovely mother in law made me her, non THM version years ago. I would always ask her to make it when we had a family gathering. Since adopting THM the sweet brown sugar that’s in her recipe was out for me, as well as her added carrot that I could do without.
So it was time to tie on the apron and figure it out THM style with the addition of caraway seed, and apple cider vinegar and I am so happy I did! It turned out
better just as good (tee hee) as I remember. 🙂
This is such a great meal for any occasion that calls for the savory blends to wake up the pallet. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do! <3
