I love the unusual combination of flavorings in this dish. The tastes of the cinnamon and ginger really come through, and the bittersweet mixture of lemon and honey, with a sprinkling of currants, adds a perfect finish. Serve this over whole-grain couscous to complement the Middle Eastern flavors. Add spinach or Swiss chard to complete the meal. Use a medium to large (3 ½ to 5 quart) slow cooker.

This stew is colorful and full-flavored thanks to a host of vegetables and seasonings. I like to cook the collards separately to avoid any bitter taste in the stew. Since sweet potatoes break down easily, it’s important not to cook this stew too long. For a mild yet still flavorful version, eliminate the hot chile. Serve it accompanied by crusty warm bread.
