If you were raised in the South, you likely had these potatoes a few times a month. It’s still a dish I crave today!

 


For those of us raised in the South, stewed potatoes were more than just a dish; they were a staple, gracing our tables several times a month. Today, they remain a nostalgic craving, embodying the essence of Southern hospitality and culinary tradition. Originating from the resourceful kitchens of the rural South, where simplicity and availability dictated the menu, stewed potatoes have stood the test of time as a beloved comfort food. This dish, with its tender potatoes simmered in a savory broth, seasoned with just the right blend of herbs and spices, offers a heartwarming meal that speaks directly to the soul.

Serving Suggestions:
To elevate this humble dish into a feast, consider pairing it with classic Southern sides. Cornbread, with its sweet, crumbly goodness, complements the stew's savory depth beautifully. For a touch of greens, collard greens stewed with bacon or smoked ham hocks add a smoky bitterness, creating a perfect balance. A crisp, fresh salad dressed in a tangy vinaigrette can also offer a refreshing contrast to the richness of the stewed potatoes.
