Recipe: Cauldron Meatballs

Meat and poultry recipes with herbs
September 08, 2009

In Ancient Celts houses, the cauldron was always on the fire, and every day were new ingredients added to the soup: meat, vegetables, game.
Only one or two times in a year the cauldron was emptied, and the leftovers were used for some tasty meatballs.

The CauldronI wanted to try this tradition in modern times, cooking a cauldron of meat and vegetables, and preparing meatballs with rosemary, basil, parsley and sage.
