Clarifying Soup Stock

Here is a great method to use for getting a perfectly clear stock. Follow this method after you have made and strained your stock. I also use this method to clarify other types of stock. After you have clarified your stock, pour 1/4 cup full of the stock and freeze separately so you can use it to clarify your next batch. You can use water for this but I prefer not diluting the stock with the water.

1/4 cup clarified broth or water
2 egg whites
crushed eggshells from the 2 eggs

Mix ingredients together in small bowl.
Add mixture to strained stock that has been cooled to room temperature (no more than 2 liters at a time); bring to a boil over medium heat and continue to simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat, let stand a couple minutes.
Strain through a sieve double lined with cheesecloth into a large measuring cup or bowl.
Enjoy this "Liquid Gold"!
