Tip #1

- Store leftover stew in resealable freezer containers or bags; freeze up to 3 months. To thaw, place in refrigerator for 24 hours. Reheat in microwave or over medium-low heat in 2-quart saucepan.

Tip #2

- Parsnips are a root vegetable with a mild sweet flavor. They are commonly boiled and mashed like potatoes but in this entrée they add a sweet complement to the other vegetables in the stew. Nutritionally they contain a small amount of iron and vitamin C.
