Of all the dishes in the world, none I would rather have on a winter day than the humble cawl.
It is the comfort food of the celtic gods.
The great feature of cawl is that no one recipe defines cawl. The recipe is basically how your mother or grandmother made it when you were a kid.
If my case, it was the way dad made it.
I cannot tell you my secret recipe since It is a closely guarded family secret.
Traditionally this dish would have been a broth made with sheep’s head and ligaments, but it has evolved into something a touch more palettable – a slow cooked stew of lamb and leaks.
You can use quality lamb, but I think it benefits from tough stringy cuts such as the neck – so that the meat holds itself together after a few hours on the stove.
here is one recipe:
* 2lb Best end of neck Welsh Lamb
* 1/2 lb Carrots
* 2 large Leeks
* 1/2 oz Flour
* 1 small Swede or Turnip
* 1 lb Potatoes
* 1 oz parsley
* Salt and Pepper
1. Put the meat into the saucepan, cover with cold water, add salt and pepper, bring slowly to the boil and skin carefully. (This can be done the night before and the fat allowed to set on the surface. This makes it easier to skim off)
2. Then add the carrots (cut in half), the swede (sliced) and the white of the leeks, and simmer gently for two to two-and-a-half hours.
3. Add the potatoes (cut in flour) and continue to simmer for another 30 minutes.
4. When the potatoes are almost cooked, thicken with flour and a little water.
5. Lastly add the green of the leeks and parsley (chopped) and simmer for another 10 minutes and serve in basins while hot with a splash of cold milk and plenty of grated cheese
