i made a wonderful roasted and then crock potted lamb breast and ended up with all this stock at the botton of the pot. I have never used lamb stock as a soup base but dont' want to waste it. what should i do with it? any ideas out there?
Use it with barley, and dried mushrooms, and the usual soup vegs, and you'll have Scotch Broth. Keep the fat to a minimum, as that is where the strong flavour resides.
You could freeze it in an ice cube tray and save it for when you'd like a little bit of that flavor.
Maybe add a bit to a winter-vegetable risotto? Or sauté mushrooms and shallots, then add a little lamb broth to deglase and pour it over pasta, perhaps with grated cheese?
Save it for future sauces. Reduce to a concentrated level, then freeze in measured quantities, whether in ice cube trays or plastic bags. It's always nice to have homemade stock ready to use.
