The Gelatine Factory

for the benefit of Warwickians and others by Anthony James Leahy 2008


Warwickshire Cold Pot


1/4 lb of Haricot Beans

1 Carrot

Half a Turnip

2 Onions

1/2 lb Fat Bacon

Herbs and Parsley


2 Tomatoes

Pepper and Salt

1 1/2 Pints of stock

1 1/2 lbs of Meat

4 leaves of Nelson's Waterleaf Gelatine or

1/4 oz of Nelson's Speedway Powder Gelatine


Soak the Haricot Beans for at least 12 hours. Add the Beans, Bacon, Herbs, Parsley and Seasoning to the Stock, and let all simmer greatly for 2 hours.

Cut up the meat into rather large pieces, add to the vegetables and let the whole simmer for a further hour.

Remove the Parsley and Herbs and serve the Meat and Bacon on a large hot dish in the centre of the vegetables. Pour Gelatine, after dissolving in hot (not boiling) water over the whole and allow to stand until cold.
