Calf's foot jelly

A jelly, made by making a stock that includes a calf"s foot. This naturally sets when cold, and from Norman to Victorian times used to be popular as nourishment for invalids.

The Normans treated it as a treat in normal life, flavouring it with pepper and saffron, or perhaps red wine, then decorating it with laurel leaves - then serving it at banquets.

If you enjoy cooking take a minute to look at ‘Simon Scrutton French Cookery Classes’ on Google – and learn how to make top class bistro-style dishes. Suitable for beginners upwards.
