    Epic soup time...

    Just made the fattiest, most delicious bowl of soup ever...

    Lamb and vegetable soup.

    I had to actively stop myself from skimming off the fat because I haven't actually made soup since my CW days and of course, back then, I would have been anally afraid of it.

    I make good fatty soup, without hardly any layer at all on top, by committing a cardinal sin while making bone broth.

    I allow it to BOIL.

    Just a slow, gentle, boil. But that is enough.
    It suspends much of the fat in the liquid making it cloudy and very rich.
    And delicious.

    It's something you are absolutely NOT supposed to do when making proper 'clear' broth.
    Heh. F* that.

    I kinda had the same thing going on actually. There was a slight layer, but not as much as I suspected there would be!

    Can you post roughly the recipe? Thanks!

    I start with some low sodium stock for bone marrow broth and gently boil until its easy to poke out all the marrow. Cool it down to simmer, clean the sides of the bones a bit for more fat/tissue and then immersion blend the broth with a 20+ organic spice blend from Costco. The blending makes the fatty broth super silky...drink it alone or I add veggies too.

    Sure, although I'd SERIOUSLY recommend learning to ad-lib your own soups for yourself, which is how this came together. Just went through the cupboards and fridge to see what was good and made it with whatever was there.

    Broth:

    12 cups of water
    1.5 lbs of lamb bones
    1/2 cup of celery leaves
    1 large onion sliced into rings
    8 whole black peppercorns
    2 whole cloves
    1 clove of garlic
    Rosemary to taste (I kinda used a lot but that's just me)
    Optional: One or two (depending on size) fresh jalapeños diced into the mix (I like things with some heat)

    Simmer in pot for two hours and boom, broth. Optionally, you can strain the broth, but it's not really necessary. Those veggies are still good!

    Soup:

    Lightly brown about a pound of lamb cubes (just to get the outside dark, not cook all the way through, and remember, you don't need ANY oil for this)

    Place lamb cubes in pot of broth.

    To that, you can basically add any veggies of your choice. Don't let what I added be the be-all-to-end-all or anything. I added carrots, broccoli, asparagus, bell peppers and cooked for just a few minutes more, done, eat right away.

    Dude, if you have your own bones, why the processed junk? Just toss the bones in water and simmer. Comes out perfect every time. Kind of a no-fail thing as long as you don't over-salt it (I've had people do that before and ugh, little goes a long way).

    Hah! Since when is that a sin? I thought that was the whole point. That's how I have always made broth. (I have three big cauldrons going right now since I just picked up a meat shipment yesterday. I'm gonna have bone broth for the whole winter.

    You know... according to those hoity-toity chef's who think all broth's and stocks should be as clear as steam distilled mountain spring water blessed by the pope his holy self. DERP!

    They even have 101 tricks and hoops you can jump through to try and un-sully your waters if you have muddied them.
    No.
    It tastes better cloudy you fools!

    Also... people. Listen.
    Marrow is too precious to toss into a soup pot.
    Cut those bones if they are the good round center kind.
    Roast them and eat the marrow out... there will still be some left.
    THEN put them in the soup pot.
    That is all.

    I agree. I also like to mash up roasted bone marrow and slather it on steaks. Although I do leave the marrow inside the puny bones when I make stock, but that's mostly cause I'm too lazy to pick it out.
