View Full Version : Scotch broth

When I was a young kid my mom used to make me Campbells "Scotch broth" which I just loved. Fast forward a lifetime and now I can't find it here on the shelves. About 10 years ago I remember picking up an REALLY expensive can of it and discovering that it was made in Canada, which I guess makes it an import now. At any rate, I can't find it for sale anywhere locally, just some obscure Amazon listings which don't thrill me. Sigh...

So, looks like I'll have to make my own recipe, which is normally how I like to do things. It's just that I remember the Campbells version was actually pretty good and easy to make. Although I'm a purist with most culinary things I really don't feel like hunting down lamb bones (what butcher sells those???) and making stock from them, so has anyone ever heard of ready made mutton broth? Any ideas?

Thanks

I have a wee dram of 16YO Lagavulin next to me. Does that count as Scotch broth? :whistling:

Aye! Tis broth alright. But why no broth of the "Glen" kind???

Another Lagavulin fan here.

It's more smokey/peaty than the "glens"

The Glenlivet of the past was a peaty dram. It is no more. I prefer Islay whiskies to all others. Off Islay I am a fan of Talisker, Auchenstoshan, The MacAllan. Speyside and Scapa are good as well.

Well, at least you've gotten me curious enough to try it.

I grew up on that stuff - yumm.

They now call it BEEF (with vegetables and barley) here in KC.
