Boney Bones here!
Let us talk about creating shivers down the spines of your guests  shall we. This is something that I know a lot about so hede my words. Errie effect's are what
Halloween Parties are all about.  And when it comes to  refreshments, there's no need to worry about making your food look beautiful.  This is the one time of the year where everything can look unsightly and not so appitizing....yessssss


1 lb ground beef/or cubed beef/& sausage chunks
1 frozen package of turnip greens
1 large can of mushrooms
1 can pinto beans
1 can blackeye peas
2 can black beans
1 large red onion
1 can french cut green beans
2 cans diced tomatoes

food proportions do not matter in this recipe- just toss in anything dark and ugly!

Brown grown beef or cubed meat & chunked sausage in skillet until browned.  Add to stew pot.  Dice red onion & add mushrooms in skillet with butter. Cook until golden brown.
( I add red wine for flavor but this can be omitted. ) Add to stew pot. 
Add all the rest of the can ingredients & -Slowly stew all together-
Add water as needed----or a hot pot of black coffee
add black food coloring- according to looks------
Season according to taste------

This is my own personal recipe that is always a hit at my Halloween parties.
The idea here is to make a stew with the darkest in color and ugliest veggies that you can find.  You can't go wrong with mixing them together because all dark and ugly vegetables taste wonderful together.  Make your stew as ugly as you can.  For extra visual effect- use whole turnip green leaves and whole mushrooms.
Children's imaginations will run wild when you do this. 
This makes a terrible looking stew but wonderful in taste.
I usually make Ghost shape cornbread to serve along side the stew. You can find Halloween shaped cake pans/cornbread pans in the baking section, craft section or Halloween section of your local department store.
If your a Southerner--- this will temp your taste buds for sure!!

Serving Suggestions: I always serve this is a BIG BLACK CAST IRON POT & call it my Caldron. 
If you really want to have some fun......cook your "Witches' Black Brew Stew" over a camp fire in the yard after dark. 
I serve my stew in deep black stew bowls but any black dishes would work great.
