Bone Stock with Seaweed

We’ve got out of the habit of making stock but at one time they were an indispensable part of cooking. Nowadays there are stock cubes and gravy powders, cup-a-soups and instant miso but still nothing beats the deep, rich flavour of a good, slow simmered stock. It’s not difficult. It just takes a little time. You can make stock with fresh bones, roast bones or just vegetables.

Here’s a roast lamb bone stock with vegetables and seaweed.
