making consomme

Wendy Lai | Jan 25, 2002 05:12 PM

I've read recipes on how to make consomme, yet I have never tried. The clairfying process is what scares me. The whole "make a raft" seems like a really mysterious thing, more scientific then cooking.

Is is as easy as it described in the books? It seems to me the process would make a huge batch of egg drop soup with egg shells in it!

Any reassuring advice?
