    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Prepare the vegetables by peeling and halving the carrots, halving the celery stalks, and halving and rinsing the leeks in several changes of water to remove grit.
    2. 2
      Wipe the meat with a damp, clean cloth.
    3. 3
      Place in a large soup or stock pot and cover with cold water.
    4. 4
      Bring to a boil over medium heat, skimming and disposing of the foam off of the surface with a wire mesh strainer until no more foam rises to the top.
    5. 5
      Place the peppercorns in a stainless steel tea diffuser or a cheesecloth bag.
    6. 6
      Add the peppercorns, vegetables, and salt to the kettle, cover and simmer very slowly for about 3 hours or until the meat is quite tender.
    7. 7
      Meanwhile, in a small bowl, soak the raisins or currants in water to cover.
    8. 8

    10. 10

    12. 12
      Drain and chop the raisins/currants.
    13. 13
      In a small saucepan, melt the butter and add the vinegar, brown sugar, and chopped raisins.
    14. 14
      Bring to a slow boil and cook over moderately low heat about 3 minutes.
    15. 15
      Add the mustard, horseradish and about 1 1/2 cups of the reserved stock (save the remaining stock for another use).
    16. 16
      Bring to a rapid boil and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring often.
    17. 17
      Remove from the heat and taste for seasoning.

      Whisk in the sour cream.
    19. 19
