Winter is in the air and my favourite thing to do is have a pot of soup on the heater. Chicken or lamb and vegetable is the usual. It simmer gently waiting for hungry tummies to eat when they are ready. At no further cost to the family, the heater is going anyway.
I use an Aldi mixed vegetable for $1.75 (New Zealand produce) and a few chicken drumsticks or those strange lamb bits when you buy half a lamb (bones and all). Some stock, onion, garlic and pepper. I bring it to boil on the regular stove and move it to the heater for the rest of the day.
It makes about 8 litres.
