your guide to making stock

STOCK TAKE Stocks can be made with red meat, chicken, fish or vegetables alone. • Meat stocks are made by simmering meat bones (usually beef or veal, rarely lamb stock) and trimmings with aromatic vegetables and herbs in water to extract their flavour. • Chicken and fish stocks are made in the same way. • Vegetable stocks are made by simmering vegetables, such as onion, celery and carrot, with a bundle herbs, such as a bouquet garni. A supply of your own low-salt homemade stocks, stacked in the freezer in small portions, will quickly become a kitchen must-have. Once you taste the difference a homemade stock can make to the dishes you cook, you’ll never look back. A SIMMERING ISSUE Meat and chicken stocks require hours of simmering to extract gelatine from the bones for a rich…

questions & answers

Q Soups aside, what other dishes take well to stock? Whether made with vegetables, meat or fish, stocks are the ultimate ingredient in the kitchen. A good beef or veal stock is the backbone of classical French cooking. They can also be used for a multitude of dishes that require braising meat, or as the beginnings of a hearty stew or silky sauce to accompany meat. Stocks are widely used to cook grains and pulses as they boost the flavour, such as in beans, risotto, rice and lentils. Q Should you add any salt to a stock while making it? If so, how much?

top 4 stock tips from le cordon bleu chefs

1 Choose bones that still have some trimmings from the meat attached as this will give much more flavour to your stock. Remove the bones once the stock has been cooking for the correct time. 2 Fish stock simmers for 20-30 minutes, vegetable stock for 1 hour, chicken stock for 1-2 hours and beef stock for 4-6 hours. 3 After simmering the bones and/or vegetables, strain out the solids and pour the liquid into a bowl. Refrigerate the liquid until chilled, then scrape and discard the solidified fat layer from the top. 4 Adding vegetables, like kale or other leafy greens, to your stock will ultimately lead to a grassy-tasting stock. If you’re adding spinach, for example, simmer with it in for no longer than 15 minutes in the bubbling broth.…
