Hearty soups. Broth how to...



Although broths require long slow cooking, they need comparatively little attention from the cook so they are a good dish to make when you plan to spend an afternoon in the kitchen doing other jobs such as making pastry or on wash day.

It is important to choose bones with a high proportion of meat attached to them in order to flavour the liquid well and provide chunks of meat to eat in the final dish.
