  1. use it as soup base... mix with beef stock or chicken stock if it'll make it easier for ya!

    1. 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.

      1. 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?

        1. 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.
