Today I worked on processing the hunted goods into usable materials, and I got Avala’s help teaching me to make Camline Stew. She’s still kind of confused as to why I’m doing this. I haven’t the guts to explain to her what’s going on in my head. Suffice to say, I’m just telling her that I’m still getting used to being back. She bought the tale.
Camline Stew, is a stew traditionally made from all leftover meals or ingredients of a week being put into a pot and boiled in water for several hours. This includes any bread, meats, flour, grains, and literally everything else used in cooking from that week, all put into the pot. And since the Athakarin week is only five days long, that means it happens like this every five days.
The end result is a mushy but flavorful stew that can delight the senses but make your eyes want to vomit. It doesn’t usually look tasty. Its just a brown or grey mess of mushiness. But the texture is wonderful and the flavor is too.
Avala taught me a basic Camline stew, where I stick them all in the pot at the same time. However she has in her time on Evelon II, figured out how to cook things separately only a few at a time before putting them together in order to make a truly wonderful Camline stew. Mine was mediocre. I’m pretty certain that even the Replicator’s Camline stew would taste better than mine. I’m going to have to get some practice.
Either way, I now have a whole pot of the stuff for the next few days, and I have to eat it all. Next time, I might make a smaller batch so that if it tastes terrible it won’t last as long.
