  8. Use a little water to fully deglaze the roasting pan to get maximum flavour from pan bits stuck to the bottom.
  9. Transfer to stockpot.
  10. Bring to a boil over high heat and skim fat off the top with a slotted spoon.
  11. As soon as stock begins to boil, reduce heat to a gentle simmer.
  12. Simmer for 2½ to 4 hours depending on how concentrated you want to your veal stock.
  13. Strain the stock through a fine sieve.
  14. Chill as rapidly as possible.
  15. Transfer strained stock into shallow pans so the stock will cool quicker.
