This recipe is pretty awesome, but I'm SURE they meant to say cook on LOW, not high, for 6-7 hours. I gathered all ingredients before I realized my crock pot is a 3 quart, not 6. So I made a batch yesterday on high and switched to low after about 4 hours when I noticed it was turning to mush. Today I made a second batch on LOW and it turned out PERFECT. Maybe it's the 3 quart vs. 6 quart, but I'd suggest LOW.

I cooked and stopped at about 4 1/2 hours on high potatoes and squash were starting to b much and disintigrate. 6 hours on low might have been ok but much less time on high on my recomendation. This recipe was excellent. My neighbor joined us and whole family loved it!!

Yum! The mix of flavors were different, yet not exotic. We took the stew, slow cooker and all to my mother in laws, where everyone loved it and had seconds. It's a bit of work chopping everything up, but I always chop up extra to freeze for later. This is well worth it.

Flavor is delicous, but texture was a little too thick & gooey. Perhaps it's because I don't have a slow cooker (even though it was cooked covered for 2 to 3 hours on low temperature). See my post or other recipes at
