I can't claim any great Kentish heritage for my Halloween Hotpot but it does use ingredients you can largely buy locally. It's a variation on the traditional Lancashire Hotpot but it uses up all that pumpkin left over after the lanterns have been made and I prefer stewing lamb to chops. For a veggie version just use a suitable alternative to lamb, everything else stays the same. This dish will feed four, takes about 30 minutes to prepare and an hour to cook. All the successful recipes are stored in the Directory.
