Father, mother, forgive my crime. This ‘broth', I refuse to use the street term ‘sloop', would not pass for runoff in Auldale. But I must make coin to rub together, and the common man must eat.
Broth base: four parts water, one part animal blood, one part cooking grease.
Boil the base. Add sweated greymeat.
Separately, boil vegetables until the rot rises to the surface.
Skim the froth, add vegetables to base. Add alcohol or pickling brine to taste.
Serve piping hot.
