A simple recipe to make a good and tasty poultry or meaty broth
Makes 5 cups of broth:
- 1 poultry or pieces of meat and bones
- 1 onion
- 1 carrot
- 1 leek
- 1 stalk celery
- 1 stalk parsley
- 1 stalk thyme
- 1 bay leaf
- 2 cloves garlic
- Pepper corns
Put the carcass, meat and bones in a big pan. Add the onion, leek, celery and carrot cut into big chunks.
Add the stalks of thyme, and parsley, bay leaf, garlic and crunched pepper corns.
Cover with cold water.
Salt the water and bring to a boil as quick as you can.

If possible, let it rest in the fridge overnight to remove the grease more easily.
When the stock is ready, strain it through a sieve.
