Caribou Soup Recipe

Step 1

Trim the meat from the bones and cube in coarse dice. Simmer the bones in water or stock with the bay leaves, juniper and cloves for about 2 hours. Remove the bones and strain the stock. Return the broth to the pot.

Step 2

In a skillet brown the meat in a little oil or bacon fat. Add to the pot. Add the remaining ingredients except the peas and simmer 1/2 hr or more. Add the peas minutes before serving.

This soup is best re-heated the second day.
