Nothing like a bit of coddle to warm you on a winters day.
Easy to make, filling and damn tasty.
1lb of bacon pieces
1lb of sausages
1 large onion
4 large carrots
1 tblsp of barley soup mix
6 large potatoes
2 tsp of corn flour
3 black pepper corns
1 bouquet garni (parsley, thyme, bay leaf, basil, sometimes rosemary)
1 litre of pre boiled water.
1 knob of butter
Cook off the bacon in the butter and then add in the chopped onion ( if you wish or leave and put in whole when the water is added ) when it is sautéed add in the water. Add the rest of the ingredients except for the corn flower and then simmer for an hour. Then add the cornflower to thick over the next 1/2 hour eat then or leave for as long as you wish.
Often its even better the second day.
