I boil lambs hearts as a treat for my dog, I do reserve some of the juice afterwards (for the dog for a bit of gravy) but was wondering if I could clean it up and use it for stock in soups or other meals. Would the taste be too strong? Any ideas on this and any ideas on how I would go about 'cleaning up' the stock.
Your advise much appreciated.
When I was a child my mother used to stuff lambs hears to feed us! And very tasty they were, too.
We used to have stuffed hearts too ... what a lucky dog!
You could use the juice as component in gravy for any robust food I would have thought. As for 'cleaning up' - not sure what you mean. Straining through fine nylon sieve or muslin should produce a clear liquid.
we used to have them too, so seems your dogs are not only lucky but retro too! i think the stock would be lovely, and the 'lumps' can just be strained or left and perhaps zapped with a blender if they were very unsightly. i'm hungry again now
We often have roast stuffed lamb's hearts for a mid week roast, gorgeous.
Thanks for your ideas guys, what were your hearts stuffed with?
I will strain the liquid and use for us, maybe even try them stuffed!
I must admit, they do smell good!
We used to have them too, stuffed with sage and onion stuffing (not Paxo!!) Lucky dogs.........
My last 2 dogs loved offal. We would get them some once in a while as a treat.
My dog would love them too, but she wouldn't have a chance before we'd had our fill first
I used to eat not only lambs hearts but pigs hearts too, either boiled, stuffed and roasted or sliced and casseroled. Got me through many a lean patch when I was at university and skint, or just starting out in the world of work. If I cooked them now, I'd pretend they were for the cats, then sneak one onto a plate for myself !
I stuff lamb's hearts with home made parsley and thyme stuffing, roast, with potatoes, for about an hour, make a nice thick gravy with the pan juices.
