A Loch Ness Monster soup ladle will add mystery to your soup recipes. A must have addition to the kitchen is thís soup ladle based on our beloved Loch Ness monster, Nessie. You know you want one don’t you?!
Demand for these ladles has been huge and they have appeared all over the world, such is the fascination with the Loch Ness Monster and of course it’s an excellent product. Who doesn’t want to see our Nessie peeping out of the soup pot! Supplies are out of stock in many countries but due to be available again in April 2015 so not long to go – try Red Candy in the UK.
So now that you’ve got your Nessie inspired soup ladle, you’ll need the recipe for Scotch Broth. This is a traditional Scottish soup, made from a bit of everything and designed to be very filling. Ingredients can be substituted but ideally it’s made the night before to allow the flavour to develop.
75g pearl barley and 75g split pease
1kg of neck or mutton or lamb
1 large onion
1 large leek
1 neep (turnip)
approx 2 litres of water, depending on thickness required
2 tablespoons of freshly chopped parsley
salt and pepper
Pre-soak the barley and split peas
Chop all the vegetables
Soften the chopped onion in a little cooking oil. Once softened add the water and meat and boil, skimming off any fatty deposits from the top.
After boiling for about half an hour add the barley and peas and simmer for another 30 minutes
Add the remaining vegetables
Remove the bone, strip off the meat the return this to the pot.
Add parsley before serving, perfect with warm crusty bread.
Delicious and nutritious and very warming after exploring the Scottish countryside. Don’t let a soup ladle be your only Monstrous experience – come and see the real thing!
