Ingredients
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Beat whites until stiff, while adding half a cup of sugar, and pour into a large bowl.
  2. Beat egg yolks, salt and rest of the sugar until pale and fluffy, and pour them into the bowl. Whisk together lightly.
  3. Now add all the liquid ingredients and whisk until well mixed. (There will always be considerable foam on top.)
  4. Ladle this mixture – as Ginny says “sampling the while” – into best looking liquor, wine or milk bottles. Seal and store in the refrigerator. As foam subsides, use one of the bottles to fill the others thoroughly. Give bottles a good shake at this time and always shake well before serving.
  5. Best if allowed to mature for two weeks. Serve with a sprinkling of fresh grated nutmeg.

Ingredients
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. If you are using raw bones, especially beef bones, it improves flavor to roast them in the oven first. I place them in a roasting pan and roast for 30 minutes at 350.
  2. Then, place the bones in a large stock pot (I use a 5 gallon pot). Pour (filtered) water over the bones and add the vinegar. Let sit for 20-30 minutes in the cool water. The acid helps make the nutrients in the bones more available.
  3. Rough chop and add the vegetables (except the parsley and garlic, if using) to the pot. Add any salt, pepper, spices, or herbs, if using.
  4. Now, bring the broth to a boil. Once it has reached a vigorous boil, reduce to a simmer and simmer until done.
  5. During the first few hours of simmering, you'll need to remove the impurities that float to the surface. A frothy/foamy layer will form and it can be easily scooped off with a big spoon. Throw this part away. I typically check it every 20 minutes for the first 2 hours to remove this. Grass-fed and healthy animals will produce much less of this than conventional animals.
  6. During the last 30 minutes, add the garlic and parsley, if using.
  7. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Strain using a fine metal strainer to remove all the bits of bone and vegetable. When cool enough, store in a gallon size glass jar in the fridge for up to 5 days, or freeze for later use.
