This recipe is a real blast from the past, Consommé is a classic French clarified stock, or clear soup, The French word consommé literally means “finished,” meaning the soup is more refined than a simple broth. It's often considered the "Rolls Royce" of broths, it isn't the easiest recipe, it'll take 2 days! From start to finish! But is totally worth the time and effort
