Where's the hobo in the ingredients list? Is that what hot dogs are made out of these days?

I call that kind of thing "Stone Soup" like in the childrens story of the same name and cook like that all the time. I dont know about the mollasses. The last time I added mollasses to a pot of beans it tasted bitter. Perhaps I need to get a fresh bottle.

Ron, was the mollasses stored standing up or on its side...if not stored on its side it can turn bitter and sarcastic

It was (is) upright in a glass bottle with a metal screw on lid. Its allmost empty, so I just added mollasses to my shopping list. SWIMBO said to store it lid down (upside down and air tight). Thanks Phillip

I've never known a hobo with that kind of goods. Some dry beans, maybe. This is a feast for a down and outer.

Sounds kinda interesting.

The loss in modern culture. Basic civility. My grandmammas prepared extra food and left it on the stoop for those in trouble. Sometimes they took it to families in need. My families were relatively well off during our big depession; not rich, but not starving. Leaving a bit on the porch was a common and good thing. Close to thirty percent of the populous were out of work. When a hobo came to the door, you gave him a meal. Not to make it an ideal of human compassion, but people were kinder.

Well I didn't know what else to call it. I was just putting stuff together and seeing if it worked. Guess what? It worked.

Chad, I would suspect your version of hobo stew to contain all the parts of MRE's the guys don't eat.

Yours is Hoboken stew
