The funniest thing is that I keep seeing these "collagen supplements" in the store, and wonder: "Why bother?" Why bother indeed when that stuff comes with meat? In fact, the BEST sources of collagen is in the "gristle", you know, the stuff that PEOPLE THROW OUT when they cook? And then they buy it in little pills for ridiculous sums? WTF? Anyways, I don't know if eating collagen will really do all those wonderful things the hype claims, but I can promise that there's nothing like eating a rich, silky-smooth stew while watching the snow fall (and thinking very hard about not having to shovel later)
My instructable will kinda flip between the two recipes to show how everything is timed; but I will put the full list of ingredients and how everything is done at the beginning. Please don't use this recipe as a bible though, I tend to be whimsical while cooking, and will adjust the taste -often- during the cooking process. Typically, I would grab enough veggies to seem about right, and have some left over for my next endeavor.
