stock to keep warm

stock almost done, originally uploaded by candice quates.

Now that it is back in the upper sixties, low seventies in the daytime here, I finally get around to the 2010 new orleans freeze stock experiment.

We were cooking to keep warm. The house was a crisp 50 degrees indoors when it was below freezing out in the daytime. No insulation. The neighbors, who insulated their identical twin house, say it only helps to about 60-65.

This stock, with a nice combination of cow necks and feet, came out so well it is practically an aspic. I made some great onion soup from it which got eaten too quickly to take pictures.
