  • After it boils, reduces the heat to low and cook for about 15 minutes. With a whisk, gather the resulting foam from the soup to make it clearer. Add the whole vegetables, which we cook together with the meat, over medium to low heat. Boil everything for about 45 minutes, until the meat comes off the bones.
