Jellied Stock for Raised Pies

ingredients

2 pigs' trotters (one calves' foot or one knuckle of veal)
for each trotter add 3 liters (4 - 5 pints) of water
1 slice lean bacon
1 onion
12 peppercorns
2 blades of mace
1 twist of lemon peel
bouquet garni

method

1. Split the calves' foot or trotters, washing and scraping them well.

2. Put all the ingredients together in a covered pan. Add the bones of the meat you are using, eg. rabbit, chicken etc.

3. Simmer continuously for 3 - 4 hours.

4. Strain through a piece of muslin into a clean pan and boil until the quantity is reduced to under a pint.

5. Adjust the seasoning to taste.

6. This can be poured into a raised pie which is to be eaten cold, and makes a good thick jelly.

7. If you really can't face doing this, use 2 level tablespoons gelatine to 300 ml (1/2 pint) stock.
