Method - GAME STOCK RECIPE
1. Heat the oven to 180°C
2. Roughly chop up the veg
Tip: Don’t peel the onions. This helps to give the stock a nice rich colour
3. Place all of the ingredients in two roasting trays
4. Drizzle over the olive oil and season with salt and pepper
5. Place in the oven and roast for 45 minutes until golden brown
6. Remove from the oven and place all the ingredients into a large pot and cover in cold water
7. Bring to the boil and leave to simmer until reduced by half
8. Place a muslin cloth (or clean tea towel) over a colander and place this over a larger bowl.
9. Pour in the reduced stock, carcasses and veg
This will leave you with a great game stock.
10. If you would like to store this for using later, you can return it to the pan and, again, reduce by half. Then, pour this into a plastic container and place in the fridge
11. Once this is cooled and solid, turn out onto a chopping board and cut into cubes that can then be frozen
