SO HOW'D IT GO?

What is vegetable consomme?? (sorry I don't have a circumflex)  :)

It is vegetable broth with gelatin mixed in to give it a slightly thicker consistency.  If you cant find vegetable consomme; add vegetable broth, then add 3 tbs of cornstarch to 1 tbs cold water, mix and add to stew during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Stir constantly until its as thick as you would like.

Found out yesterday that not ALL consommes are made with gelatin, so as always check the labels. ;)

umm not to be know-it-all-ish but gelatin is made of boiled animal bones, muscles, ligaments, and horse hooves. so i don't think you'd like to use vegetable consomme.

Thats just gross! Thanks for letting me know, I havent been able to find it here, glad for it now.  Hmmm.... the cornstarch works just fine and you can control the thickness.  Is there anyway to change the recipe once it has been posted?  Or add a "HUGE" warning? lol
