  • Notes
  • To cool any kind of stock rapidly, place the pot on a stand in a sink of cold water.
  • The bones may be blanched first by covering with cold water, bringing to the boil and simmering for a few minutes, then draining and washing under hot water to remove all traces of fat and scum, then under cold water until any impurities are washed away.
