I think I did refer to the stew as "modern." The earliest I believe it
existed was in Colonial America...originally it was made with whatever game
happened to be at hand..rabbit, squirrel, venison...whatever. My version is
from Chowning's Tavern in Williamsburg (with a few modifications of my own)
and uses chicken. As it is tomato-based and has corn and lima beans in it,
I assume it doesn't predate, say, the 17th-18th century. I know it's not
period...but it's good and works very well for camping events as it gets
better when it ages for a few days and is reheated. I make it, then freeze
it...to be reheated and eaten at Pennsic. We often have it on the Saturday
when most of our camp arrives.
