Original Receipt from 'Pot-luck; or, The British home cookery book' by May Byron (Byron 1914)
172. TRANSPARENT SOUP (Eighteenth Century)
Take a leg of veal, and cut off all the meat as thin as you can; when you have cut off all the meat clean from the bone, break the bone in small pieces, put the meat in a large jar, and the bones at top, with a bunch of sweet herbs, a quarter of an ounce of mace, half a pound of Jordan almonds, blanched and beaten fine; pour on it four quarts of boiling water, let it stand all night by the fire, covered close. The next day put it into a well-tinned saucepan, and let it boil slowly till it is reduced to two quarts. Be sure you take the scum and fat off as it rises all the time it is boiling; strain it into a bowl, let it settle for two hours, pour it into a clean saucepan, clear from the sediment, if any, at the bottom; have ready three ounces of rice boiled in water. If you like vermicelli better, boil two ounces; when done enough, put it in and serve it up.
