eeeeeps, I wonder what this title is going to do to my stats.
What? oh.. you thought we had a chocolate fondue…
I cooked the cottage roll on the weekend. It was easy I did so in the crock pot. So the title perhaps gives away the reviews…
I chopped up carrots, onion and celery.
Put the cottage roll in the crock and the veggies as well. Then a few table spoons of pickling spice, it is a nice blend of spices that I use when doing ham or corned beef briskets. I also put in some hunks of cabbage and some garlic and rosemary… oh and a dash of thyme. Then a cup of white wine.. hmmm or two? … and then almost covered the meat with water.
no salt or pepper though, the pickling spice has enough peppery flavour and the brined cottage roll will not need any salt.
Simmered for 6 hours on high.
Out came the cottage roll, then I strained the broth and tossed the veggies, they were covered with the pickling spice and I didn’t feel like picking it off. I did save the carrots as they were big chunks.
I then boiled some potatoes in the broth. The broth gave them an amazing flavour. I then put the broth in the freezer to make a soup with later.
We tasted the cottage roll…..
hence the title of the post.
I can’t elaborate on that any more. It was beyond what I hoped.
