Many moons ago, Campbell's used to sell Scotch Broth. I loved it. Alas, You can't find it on the shelves here anymore.
Now I have made the standard lamb stew using different parts of lamb. I love turnips in it, but this is for the family and that is one veggie along with liver that will always be on their list of the biggest yukkie foods. So no turnips go into it.
I do not have leeks, but do have a couple of bunches of spring onions along with regular Spanish onions and fresh carrots. Plenty of celery. And of course the Pearl Barley. As far as I can see looking at different recipes for Scotch Broth, other than the leeks and turnips I am all set for Scotch Broth. Or am I?
So I thought I would reach across the pond and ask the folks who grew up with this magnificent stew. Any special recipes you favor, keeping in mind what I don't have?
