Grouse Soup


  • bones of 2 roasted grouse
  • breast of 1 roasted grouse
  • 1 quart of any kind of stock, or pieces and bones of cold roasts
  • 3 quarts of cold water
  • 2 slices of turnip
  • 2 slices of carrot
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • bouquet of sweet herbs
  • 3 tablespoonfuls of butter
  • 3 tablespoonfuls of flour


Cook the grouse bones in three quarts of water four hours.

The last hour add the vegetables and the cloves; then strain, and return to the lire with the quart of stock.

Cook the butter and the flour together until a rich brown, and then turn into the stock.

Cut the breast of the grouse into very small pieces and add to the soup. Season with salt and pepper and simmer gently half an hour. If there is any fat on the soup, skim it off.

Serve with fried bread.

When bones and meat are used instead of the stock, use one more quart of water, and cook them with the grouse bones.
