 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    5      Gallons       Water
   10      Lb            Beef Bones -- sawn
   10      Lb            Veal Bones -- sawn
    5      Lb            Chicken Backs -- or feet
      1/2  Celery        Chopped
    1                    Leek -- chopped
    2                    Onions -- chopped
    2      Lb            Carrot -- chopped
    3      Oz            Tomato Paste
    1      Head          Garlic -- crushed
    1                    Ham Hock -- sawn
      1/2  Bunch         Parsley Stems
    5      Bay           Leaves
    1      Tbl           Peppercorns -- crushed
      1/2  Tbl           Thyme Leaf
    2      Cups          Red Wine
 
  1. Blanch the bones by placing on a bed of Mirepoix in a roast pan.
 
  2. Add all ingredients but water. Roast in a 350 degree F oven until
  well browned. Do not let anything burn. Baste with red wine.
 
  3. Bring to the boil, then simmer for up to 18 hours, with skimming
  to remove any scum that rises.
 
  4. Scald clean containers, and strain stock into each, seeing some
  fat into each to act as a protective cap. Cover with saran and
  cool.
 
  5. This will keep at least a week, but should be part of the regular
  weekly Mise en place. Excess should be frozen or reduced for glac
  d'viand, a 10-1 reduction. The fat from the top is nice to use for
  making brown roux, as it has just the right color and flavor.
 
 NOTES:
 
 These recipes are for 5 gallons, but you can cut them in half. It
 hardly pays to make less than 10 quarts, but if space is a factor,
 reduce the stock by boiling to half its original volume. The flavors
 will be more pronounced, as will any errors introduced.
