jeepster4@sprintmail.comNOTES : The above is the recipe as printed in
the cookbook. I use it asa base only. Here is where it becomes hard
because I have made this forso long that I don't measure exactly and go
a lot by taste. I double allthe spices except for the salt and sugar.
I add them later and totaste. I use at least 1/8t of both of the
allspice and cloves. We havehere a very rich tasting boullion-type
liquid called BV (I use this alot to enrich the beef flavor of pot
roast stews, etc.) I add 2T BVwhen adding the boiling water. The BV,
like bouillon is salty, thus thereason for salting later to taste. I
also don't use the onions, but uselarge chunks of the carrots and
potatoes. This is so popular with myfamily that I always double the
recipe. (and double the double spices)After the meat and broth are
ready, I take out 1/2 to freeze for a latermeal. It freezes well and is
very versatile. Sometimes I thicken thebroth, but more often I do not.
Sometime I use noodles or dumplings.Recipe by: Better Homes and Gardens
