Excellent heart warming broth containing, Celery, Leeks, Parsnip, Carrot and Turnip, oh and several handfuls of freshly cooked ham hock. The idea is to slow cook a fresh Ham and when cooled add some stock and meat to the dish. Reduce the qty to whatever you want. Why not add extra or reduce what you like or don't. For Vegetarians add Vegetable stock. I use Lakeland stocks. Not full of salt like some others around. Or make your own from fresh veg.
