Curried Cider Pork Stew

2.5 lbs of pork carnitas, cut into chunks

Toss all of this into your crock pot in the morning and let ‘er rip all day. The longer, the better.
I enjoyed this yesterday. It’s crisply cool outside and the clear sun begged for a soup and a nice day. The light has changed into that fall light that has this clarity and appeal that makes you want to don some jeans and a long sleeve shirt and bask in the hot sun for the few days that it will feel like that. I love when the shade is cool and the sun is scorching and you feel this hint of breeze. It’s soup weather – bring it on!
