Make a stock with the chicken, an onion, a carrot , bayleaf, clove of garlic and a bit of celery in about a pint and a half of water. Simmer for about an hour.

Drain into a container and discard the solid bits.

Soften a chopped onion in a pan, add a TBS flower;pinch of nutmeg,mace,cayenne pepper. Tip in your stock and half a pint of milk, simmer for a few minutes. Crumble a wedge of stilton cheese into the pan and simmer till it's disolved.

Let it cool, bung it through whatever liquidising machine you've got. Reheat and enjoy.

Works for a post roast chicken carcass too.

Well, I like it.

Good show that man!!!   Looks like you've got a cracking butcher too Skoot.

We were pleasantly suprised to find out our butcher had finally got our heart and lungs in. All still freshly attached to the aesophagus ready for making faggots etc.

How much say I looking at the size of 3 of them and gulping. How much??? Free of cause, we just can't sell these anymore.

Half a freezer drawer full of free food - priceless!!!!
