Okay, but we didn't really enjoy it much.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 5 lbs beef or 5 lbs veal bones, cut into small pieces
  • 34 lb onion, coarsely chopped
  • 6 ounces carrots, coarsely chopped
  • 6 ounces celery, coarsely chopped
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 4 whole peppercorns
  • water


  1. In a stockpot, cover the bones with cold water, bring to a simmer.
  2. Drain off the water and rinse the bones until the water runs clear.
  3. After rinsing, add 3 quarts of water to the bones, then the onion, carrots, celery, bay leaves, and peppercorns.
  4. Simmer for at least 7 hours, never allowing the liquid to boil – this may be done in a crockpot, if you like.
  5. Strain through a medium mesh.
  6. Discard the solids, cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until cold.
