Beef Stock Recipe

Beef bones
4 quarts water
1/2 cup vinegar
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup sliced onions
1/2 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup diced turnips
1/2 cup diced celery, with leaves
2 or 3 sprigs parsley
1 small bay leaf
2 cloves
Pinch of marjoram
1/4 teaspoon pepper

In a large kettle, cover beef bones with 4 quarts of water. Add vinegar and salt (using 1/4 cup vinegar and 1 teaspoon salt for each 2 quarts of water). The vinegar helps release and dissolve the calcium from the bones in the stock. Cover the kettle and simmer for 2 or 3 hours. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for another hour.

Do not add cold water to the stock after it has started to simmer; the stock will become cloudy.

Strain and cool. Remove hardened fat from the surface before using.
