This recipe was developed for Lamb and Mutton SA by Celeste Weiss as part of the Recipe Development and Standardisation module which is offered by the Department of Consumer and Food Sciences at the University of Pretoria. This year’s final year Foods students where tasked with using lamb and other meaty bones that would have gone to waste to create an innovative bone broth base recipe.
