Kale Brose (a Scotch Recipe)


  • 1/2 ox-head or cow-heel
  • 1 teacupful of toasted oatmeal
  • salt to taste
  • 2 handfuls of greens
  • 3 quarts of water


Make a broth of the ox-head or cow-heel, and boil it till oil floats on the top of the liquor, then boil the greens, shred, in it. Put the oatmeal, with a little salt, into a basin, and mix with it quickly a teacupful of the fat broth: it should not run into one doughy mass, but form knots. Stir it into the whole, give one boil, and serve very hot.

Time: 4 hours.

Seasonable all the year, but more suitable in winter.

Sufficient for 10 persons.
