Yield: 6 Servings
|1||Lamb Or Mutton Bone|
|3 smalls||Onions; (Walnut-Size)|
|6||Cloves; or more to taste|
|1 small||Piece Mace; About An Inch Square|
|½||Teacupful Dried Corn|
|A Sprig Of Parsley|
|3 mediums||Size Apples--2 If Small.|
|1||Orange; juiced and strained|
Place bones & chicken in large pot and cover with cold water and let simmer all day. Then strain, and when cold, skim the grease. Yields 3 quarts of solid stock.
Place remaining ingredients (except orange juice) in pot in clear water and boil. Strain. There should be a pint of this vegetable stock after it is strained.
Allow a small teacup of beef stock to every person and add the vegetable stock to it. Let it come to a boil and skim. Add salt and red pepper (should rather peppery), and when ready to serve, add the strained juice of one orante to this quantity. Sweeten the orange juice until it is palatable. The soup may require a touch of sugar as some of the vegetables are acidic.
This is only a outline; ingredients may be varied according to taste.
