Instructions
  1. First you must blanch the bones to remove blood and impurities so that you end up with a clearer better tasting stock. To do that cover the bones with cool water and then bring the water up to a simmer and wait for the water to turn from pink to a light grey. As soon as the water turns grey drain the bones and rinse well. Now your bones are ready to start the stock.
  2. Place bones and measured water into a pot big enough to offer a couple inches of space for the additional ingredients and protects you from boiling over. Bring the water to a boil over high heat and immediately lower the temperature to low so that it a very low simmer that is just lightly bubbling occasionally. Start tracking time once you hit a boil.
  3. After 3 hours of simmering add your Onion, Carrot and Celery which is also known as a standard Mirepoix and the Bay, Parsley, Peppercorns, and Thyme which is also known as the Sachet E'pice. Cook for an additional hour then drain through a fine mesh strainer into either a metal container that can be placed in an ice bath to chill for future use or another pan for immediate use.
