Court Bouillon

Sherry Blizzard


I recently tried a recipe for Salmon Corn Cakes out of The City Tavern Cookbook and, while I didn't care for the corn cakes, the Court Bouillon and the Herb Remoulade was excellent. The recipe makes an enormous amount and I was able to pressure can 3 additional quarts.

This is an excellent veggie stock to use in soups or risotto. I want to try this with a morel mushroom risotto.
