My Mum's Scotch Broth Recipe

1 lamb shank
3 pints of water
1oz pearl barley and 2oz dried peas, soaked overnight ( you can also buy broth mix)
A large carrot a large onion, a small leek (all sliced), a small diced turnip and 4oz shredded cabbage
1 level tablespoon of chopped parsley

Place the lamb shank in a large pan with the water, pearl barley, peas and seasoning. Bring to the boil and simmer for an hour.
Add the carrot, onion, leek and turnip, return to the boil and simmer for another 30 minutes or until the vegetables are just cooked. Add the cabbage and cook for another 15 minutes. Remove the mutton from the pot and trim off the meat (into small pieces if they are to be served with the soup) and return it to the pot, discarding the bone. Skim off any fat, season to taste and sprinkle parsley on the piping hot bowls of soup before serving.

Serve with buttered crusty bread.
