Ingredients Required : Makes 5 litres
5lbs of beef bones - Frozen is fine
3 large carrots
6 or 7 medium onions
1 head of garlic
10 litres of water
For something so simple to make I sure took a LOT of photos during this process, I have condensed a few of the shots. The order is Top Left , Top Right, Bottom Left , Bottom Right.
|While the bones are roasting , peel your carrots ( skip this if you have organic ones, which I don't this time of year ) and chop into large pieces. Quarter the onions ( skins on is fine ) and dice the garlic. |
|Add them to the pot, with a splash of oil, I started with med/low heat while I got things going .|
|Ahh the GOOD stuff , roasted garlic :) The trick here is to cut the tips off before roasting , then you can grab it by the root and squeeze out the garlic :) Into the stock pot .|
|Everything goes into the pot , raw and roasted .|
|Don't forget to deglaze the roasting pan , I simply used 500ml of boiling water, and a wooden spoon.|
|Look at all that goodness that came off the pan, I could have saved this an made some amazing gravy .. but its stock making day ! There was actually double this amount recovered.|
|Okay , back to the stock pot. Add the deglazed liquid and 10 litres of water . I used boiling water to get things moving quicker, by simply refilling my kettle 6 times.|
Happy Cooking !
