Poultry Stock

Of course this works best with wild birds like turkey, pheasant — or even a big mess of quail. Don’t just “breast ’em out” and toss the rest — all those bones and meat are the ticket to great stock!

Steamed Mussels

A delicious and visually exotic dish – but fast and easy to prepare. It’s getting your hands on good fresh ones and storing them properly which can be a challenge.

Shellfish Stock

This is for the shells from shrimp, crab, crawfish or lobster, or similar critters – whether you catch or buy them. If your shells were cooked in a spicy boil, you have a decision to make: rinse them first, or not. If you don’t want the boil spices to clash with your intended use, give them a good rinse or three. But if you prefer the addition of those spicy “seafood boil” flavors, go commando!
