Oh I know Steve Shaw but my will power won't...

Veg stock is made chez nous by boiling all the veg garbage (ends of things, peels, onion skins etc) with some herbs spices and salt, and then straining it through cheesecloth.

I like to roast the vegetables in the oven first, to give an extra boost to the flavor. Be sure to run boiling water over the pan or foil to get all of the wonderful baked-on drippings. Then go from there to put it in a pan of water to simmer.

My veg stock consists of roughly-chopped carrots, unpeeled, celery and onions (the outer layers that you're never too sure about are ideal). A sprig of parsley, thyme and bay go in there. Season. Boil it for at least an hour. No leaves or trimmings from brassicas should ever be included. You will live for ever!

Though the seasoning can be omitted, depending on what the stock is for. In fact, I don't usually add salt, and I might just throw in a few whole black peppercorns.

Salt would only add flavour to the bits that are going to be thrown out. In this case, you want all the flavour to remain in the liquid so definitely no salt.

I usually make chicken stock (carcass + carrot + onion + celery if available) in a pressure cooker. I found long ago that this way, the bones ended up all crumbly and harmless, and the strained remains could safely be offered to the cats who were trying to break down the kitchen door. This avoided a disposal problem - we had paper waste sacks at the time, and any wet waste had to be wrapped in lots of newspaper.

I followed my own advice this evening; I didn't have many vegetables handy, but the carrots, parsnip, and onion baked in the Dutch Oven in the oven for a while, then I added chicken breast (bone and skin included) and some necks and wings and let them all roast. When I pulled out the breast and added water to the rest it turned into a beautiful golden broth that I let simmer for a while as the breast continued to bake in the oven. When the breast was finished the skin was dropped into the pot and the meat in a box in the fridge. Tomorrow I'll make soup using the chicken breast and fresh vegetables (to be purchased during senior shopping hours tomorrow).

The house smells really good this evening.

This looks as good a place as any to ask this. I am going to do a mutton curry in the slow cooker next week. I do cheat and use a sachet of sauce but my question is about the meat. I need to de-bone some mutton leg pieces. If it was just for me I'd be happy with leaving the bones in but someone I am cooking for would hate it.

What's the best way of getting shut of the bones before the curry reaches her plate?

Fried rice: there are essentially two ways.
1) Boil it and then fry it,
2) Fry it and then boil it.

So you can fry up cold leftover boiled rice with additions & flavourings of your choice.
Or fry uncooked rice briefly, then add an equal volume (or slightly more) of stock and cook over a low heat for 10 minutes, by which time the liquid should be absorbed. Additions & flavourings as before, except that some are better fried before the rice is added.

No doubt I shall be told this is not be a patch on the real thing, but it works for me.

In conversation with a drinking friend about my Christmas cakes that I made earlier this week he stated he didn't like Christmas cake because it had "flies" in it. He meant raisins and sultanas which he really doesn't like.

Hi, Dave. Does your loved one dislike the texture of bones or merely the presence of them on the plate?

I ask because meat cooked with the bones in comes out different from meat cooked without them. The broth is thicker, for one thing. It's hard to describe. My dear husband, the DH, always prefers to have the bones left in.

With a slow cooker it's pretty easy to cook the food, take out of the meat, let it chill till it's safe to handle, and remove the bones. Put the meat back in, and you have the best of both worlds - boneless meat with rich gravy.

I pick up rice for a couple of family members when I'm shopping at the Halal market in the university town where I used to work. I bought a bag this time after carefully avoiding the parboiled ones, only to have the recipient look up "super sela" and find it's the same thing, kind of, as parboiling. It's a way to cook ahead in the hull. He would like to exchange, but I think I'll donate that bag to the food bank and try again. Returning items in this time of COVID-19 is difficult.

Dad's Cure All - hot water, lemon, honey - and a single measure of your preferred spirit. Dad's was rum, mine is either spiced rum or whisky. Plus Stones' Ginger Wine.
The hot water unblocks the sinuses, the lemon and honey sooth the throat, the consequent feeling of relief is boosted by the alcohol. After three you'll feel MARVELLOUS.

Charmion, I think making yourself a batch of chicken soup will be a wonderful ceremony to start to reclaim the kitchen and your appetite. I made enough that it will last for a few days, and this is the soup that I started by putting all of the cut up but unpeeled vegetables in the Dutch oven in the oven and let them roast. Once the veggies had been in for a while I added a couple of chicken breasts with skin and bones into the pot in the oven and let the meat bake and the chicken fat add to the vegetable flavor.

Once the pot was back on the stovetop I took out the chicken and let it finish baking in the oven and in the pot added water and let it simmer for a while. before discarding all of the solid vegetables. I added the chicken bones and skin to the pot and it simmered a little more and the finished meat cooled and went into the fridge. I bottled the stock with all of the fat and waited a couple of days until I made the soup with a new batch of vegetables (onion, carrots, celery, potatoes sautéed in a little olive oil and several dollops of the retained chicken fat for flavor), a large cube of chicken bouillon (a good brand for the "value added" flavor) and at the end added the cubed chicken and the egg noodles.

It is one of my better batches. It wasn't like making soup from an entire bird carcass, but it came out just as strong.
