Expert Tips

To avoid lumps in the thickening mixture, add the cider to the flour a little at a time, not the other way around.

Instead of using the flour and cider mixture to thicken the stew, simmer 2 large apples, peeled and diced, along with the other ingredients.

Ladle each serving of the stew into plates of broad egg noodle and pass a basket of warmed rolls.
