The Perfect Soup Stock
Mike Burke, Product Line Manager at ITW Food Equipment Group, tells us how to make the perfect stock. All you need is vegetables, meat, and some spices. You start by baking the bones, and paint them with some tomato sauce. Next, add the mirepoix (chopped celery, onion, and carrots) and add back to the oven. Get the spices ready in a sachet d’epices, and get the kettle ready. The key to a good stock is starting with cold water. Add the meat, vegetables, and spices and set to simmer. You can let it simmer all night. Next morning, take out the spice bag, and start the straining. Vulcan’s pouring lip strainers are a perfect accessory to help you easily strain the stock. Just a second straining with a fine mesh strainer, and you’re set – Ready for the refrigerator for storage!
The K Series Kettles are easy to clean. Simply remove the attached strainer, and with an optional hose assembly, you can spray the kettle out in the tilted position.
