I made the stock one day, then finished it the next, so I could remove the fat from it easily. Didnt use sweet potatoes, as we dont like them , but I did put a handful of pearl barley in it, and some fresh tyme. When it was cooked, I liquidised part of it, and put it back in, as we like it a bit thick. Overall, a lovely way to use up some left over roast lamb.
