Chicken Broth

Traditional Chicken Soup Recipe from West Somerset

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Exmoor is primarily an upland area made up mainly of small villages and hamlets. The largest settlements are Porlock, Dulverton, Lynton, and Lynmouth, Simonsbath and Wheddon Cross.

This recipe is taken straight from the handwritten recipe book of my Great Grandmother, who was born and bred in the Brendon Hills of West Somerset, and is at least one hundred years old. Enjoy! Comments most welcome.

 

Cut a chicken into several pieces, put it into a stewpan with one quart of water, and a little salt; as it boils, skim it well, and let it simmer gently for two hours. If liked, about one ounce of pearl barley can be cooked in the broth and served with it.
