Consommé

When it comes to making Consommé your goal is make a stock crystal clear. This could be for a number of reasons: clear broth soups, aspics for plate designs, Pate En Croute, Head Cheese aspics, ect… The trick to all of this is to be patient and allow the  Consommé to do the work for you. you are going to be making a “raft” out of very lean meat and eggs with flavorings. This is a recipe that will take time and practice but is very much worth it. You can make  Consommé out of any type of stock it really is just all about what you are wanting to make in the end.
