remouillage?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
What is this referring too? I've checked two different French/English dictionary lists and cannot find the meaning.
I've found 'Remoulade' which is definately not what I need, but not remouillage???

I just know when one of you answers this I'm gonna smack my head cause it will be one of those "duh, of course" moments!! :rolleyes:

Remouillage refers to a stock made from recycled bones (used once before for stock). Literally, it means "re-wetting".

Thank you Anneke, I can honestly say I did not know that at all..
Another question.. Why on earth would a cook want to make stock from recycled bones? What are the benefits of doing that?

A remouillage is sometimes called a "second stock." It is sometimes used in place of or in addition to water in making another stock, thereby adding a little more flavor. Something similar is done in Chinese cooking. It can be very useful, too, when cooking meat, adding some extra flavor.

Usually the remy isn't really for flavor, it's mostly to extract the remaining collagen from the bones. Remy's usually don't have too much flavor. As was already stated, a lot of places that make remy use it in place of water in a veal stock recipe. Just gives you that much more extra body.

Also makes a good base for braising, as well as some sauces.

Is it worth it? Depends. Veal bones are expensive, and the yield on something like demi isn't really high.

We usually blend it with brown stock and reduce them together. It gives it a little more strength and body.

Nah. The final product is definitely worth more than the veal bones.

That's why we do it. :D

That is if you don't eat all the marrow out of the bones first of course!

Yup, That's what I used to do at work, and now do at home. It takes virtually no extra work time, but does make better (that is, fuller) use of the bones.

so if one was to make this remouillage or 'second stock' do you add the same ingredients again? The mirepoix and spice sachet? Or just simmer the used bones themself?
post #11 of 17
Its up to you. I definately wouldn't keep the same mirepoix from before...if you do use fresh. Certainly wouldn't hurt anything. If you are going to use the remy for starting another stock, it may not be essential, but if you are using the remy by iteself as a soup, braise, or sauce base then you might want to. When I make stock I only add the mirepoix the last hour of cooking anyways, but it is totally your decision.

In my experience, we'd drain off the bones, add them back to the pot, pour some ice over them and add water...simmer for another 8 hours or so. Some people do less, others do more.

Of course, you could just simmer your veal bones for 48 hours originally and get all the collagen out of them, but the health department tends to frown on that behavior. :)

Oh no I didn't mean using the same mirepoix from the first batch, just wondered if one would need to do the same steps with the 'second stock'..
Thanks for the how to hints.. One more question for you. Why do you add the ice with the water??
post #13 of 17
Oh, sorry I misunderstood. Of course you can do that.

The ice simply brings down the temerature so you are sure to start with cold bones and cold water, as when you make stock the first time you should start with cold water.

Oh okay, I get it now.. Thanks so much for the help..

We make a first stock, then make a remi, combine the two & reduce them by half. Way more yield for us.:chef:
