Taking Stock

Warrior Stock 

When there is little time for a meal, Dwarven Warriors can "stock" up on this nutritious drink or use it as a base for any soup.

Recipe -- In a large stockpot, over an open fire or on a stove top if you have one, start browing:

  • 1 quartered onion (skin on is fine)
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 1 bulb of garlic (sliced horizontally)
  • 1 knob of ginger (peeled and rough chopped)
  • chicken carcass

Once everything has had a chance to brown some, add at least 20 cups of water.  Then add:

  • 3 tablespoons of salt
  • 11 peppercorns
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of allspice
  • 1 stalk of fresh rosemary

Bring to a boil, skim off the top if you want a clearer stock, but who has time for that?  You're a warrior!  

Having said that, you will want to simmer it for about 6-8 hours.  Then run it through a fine mesh strainer or preferably a chinois into containers and let cool.  Additionally if you want to skim the fat after cooled you can, but for those long adventures, the fat might be needed. ~ Tim
