A delicious broth to use for homemade soup!  Put the bone in a pot with 4 cups of boiling water.  After this has cooked down, to about 2 cups of liquid, let it cool and put in fridge.  Later, skim off some of the fat--depending on your needs--fat adds taste, but is not good in excess.  You can use this fat and/or some olive oil to taste, 1-2 tbls..  When you do want to make the soup, you will want to have some type of chicken or meat,  some soup base veggies; and either pasta, rice, mashed potatoes, and soup greens to add at the last 5 minutes.

Add a cup of cooked meat, such as boiled chicken or pork or lamb.  Wash, chop and add whatever raw vegetables in the onion family and alkaline family you have on hand, such as onions, leeks, cabbage, tiny halved brussell sprouts to name a few that would go with the herbs that already have been used to flavor the leftover meat dish above.

The hebs you have already cooked the meat with, rosemary and thyme, go well with any white meat, such as poultry, pork, lamb; you don't need alot, but add some kind of cut up meat.  Taste the broth.  If it needs salt, then add a vegetable such as celery.  If it needs sweeter broth, add carrots and continue to simmer.  If it is wild and gamey, add a sauce or jam from the fridge such as mint jam.  Let the meat simmer in the broth and smell the aromas! this takes about maybe 30 minutes on medium heat.   This is the time to add shredded spinach, kale, or even lettice--about 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup.  Do not use parseley because it adds a horrible taste.  You may want to also pour a cup of this meat soup into the blender and puree it and then add it back to the soup to thicken.

You can also add a carb vegetable such potatoes (leftover mashed potatoes are great) to make a creamy milky taste to the soup broth.  If you do add potatoes, go ahead and add sour cream and see what a delicious soup you get!  Add a soft mild cheese such as ricotta or mozzerella or a melting cheese.  Season with a little black pepper to taste.

Don't forget to take the bone out after the meat has come off the bone!:)
