 How To Clarify Stock

Mrs Beeton Recipes Index Page

Note: The rule is, that all clear soups should be of a light straw colour, and should not savour too strongly of the meat; and that all white or brown thick soups should have no more consistency than will enable them to adhere slightly to the spoon when hot. All purées should be somewhat thicker.

Estimated Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Estimated Cooking Time: 20 mins

Servings: 1.2 litres (2 pints) stock, enough for 4 bowls of soup

Non-standard Cooking Utensils: A large pan


Ingredients:

1 egg

150 ml (¼ pint) water

The stock to be clarified (per 1.2 litres (2 pints))

Method

1. Heat the stock to be clarified until it is boiling

2. Take the white of 1 egg, carefully separated from the yolk

2. Whisk well together with the 150 ml water

3. Add gradually the 1.2 litres (2 pints) of boiling stock, still whisking.

4. Continue whisking on a medium heat until nearly boiling again

5. Remove from the heat and let it settle until the whites of the eggs become separated.

5. Pass through a fine cloth or sieve and the soup should be clear.
