MOCK TURTLE SOUP
Mock Turtle Soup is an English soup whose gelatinous quality makes it very much like a turtle soup.
Mock Turtle soup was created in the mid 18th century as a cheaper version of the more expensive Green Turtle soup. It is made with a calf's head, seasonings and wine (usually Sherry or Madeira). After cooking, the head is taken from the broth, cooled and the meat cut into pieces. The broth is strained and clarified and reheated with the cut pieces of meat and sometimes diced vegetables.
