Mawmenee

Maumenee

This is one of the stranger dishes I have run into. It is a sweet wine stew with foul meat and nuts.

It is also a really tasty dish, but also very sweet dish.  It works really well as a side dish for game – like we in modern time use a jam or cranberry sauce with game. The dish can be made with any kind of foul – the meat should be a game-meat as that adds to the flavour.
