Eau de Capricorn sounds a bit poncy as well.

'Mannish' it must remain I fear.

Have to say that with soup it is all about the stock. You don't need a huge pot. Just one big enough for your needs. Mine was a tenner from tesco and holds a chicken carcass plus all the other stuff and I think about four litres of water.

Favorite soup is spiced butternut squash. Cook squash in veg stock, blitz it all up, add some creme fraiche and whatever curry paste you prefer, we like tandori, blitz again return to heat. Yumster!

Beacause eating it is meant to stiffen the resolve and bolster your manliness apparently - hence Mannish.
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

To be honest Wenchy I tried it because I was curious about the taste given that the only part of the goat that wasnt used in the recipie was the skin.

Didnt ask about why it was so called until after I'd had a second helping and was wondering why I was getting strange looks of some people.  redface:

Does stock freeze well? (sorry to bug you but you seem to know more than Google about these things!  happy088)

Well if you can freeze soup you should in theory be able to freeze stock.

Quite alright.  ;) I'm no expert though! I keep mine in the fridge for a day or two then skim the fat off the top and then freeze it. I freeze it in one litre bags and also as ice cubes. Then it's available for adding taste or as a base for risotto or soup.

I didn't go out looking for it I just grabbed the biggest pot there was in tescos. The thing is a lot of people/recipes insist that you need a proper stock pot with copper bottom or heavy base I was just trying to illustrate that you didn't.
