Chop and slice vegetables as desired. Note: The pictured Cutco Brand knife is a GREAT knife! It works GREAT for this... VERY sharp. Probably the most expensive knife I've purchased but worth it!

Be careful not to overcook. The recipe Margaret gave me said 3 hours but mine was done sooner. I like the vegetables just slightly firm, yet not raw... not mushy.

Note: You can use a slow cooker also. That may take the full 3 hours. I used the stove and it was more like 2 hours. Test the veggies and determine your level of done-ness.
