Thanks. I think I will give this a try for her then as it will be different to a classic beef stew. 🙂

Thanks Penny, I understand. I’m looking for things to freeze in portions for my Mum and she wouldn’t have creme fraiche to add. I wonder if it would make much to a difference to not add it at all?

The only reason I say that is that it may split on freezing . P
