This recipe was developed for Lamb and Mutton SA by Abigail Jacob as part of the Recipe Development and Standardization 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.
