Sounds tasty!

Watched a fascinating show last night. Fannie Farmers last supper. If you have Netflix or can find it some other way give it a view.

In the show they cook a 12 course Victorian era meal all on a wood fired cook stove. several of the courses contained "jellies". All made by boiling down calves heads . They tried to stick to the traditional preparation of meal as close as possible. They did make some changes and pointe them out and why they did.

Besides being tasty the jelly is a cocktail of bone/cartilage minerals supergood for your body.

Dan,

Yes. Same as you would with stock: carrots, parsnip, red pepper, onion, garlic, whole black pepper, bay leaves and vegetable scraps we might have around (cauliflower, brocolli stems).

Some people also add the cooked carrot to the aspic. We don't , since we cook large batches. Carrots will turn the aspic sour if you don't finish it in a couple of days.

Looks similar to the studzienina I make. Yours has a lot more meat. Great with a little vinegar and hot sauce.
