    I make mine the same as the normal recipes, but I like my oxtail soup to be like the tins... Almost smooth. So instead of using flour, I just cook it all up without the flour, and then blitz, I find the blitzing is enough to thicken it to my taste.

    1 oxtail
    2 carrots diced
    1 turnip diced
    2 onions diced
    salt/pepper (to taste)
    3 tablespoons parsley chopped finely
    1 bay leaf
    1 sachet bouquet garni
    4 pints water

    Cut the tail into small joints
    - fry the joints until brown (using fry light)
    - Pour off any excess fat and add the water, salt, pepper and parsley and bay leaf.
    - Simmer for about 2 hours.
    - Leave to go cold and remove any solidified fat.
    - Add the diced vegetables, bring to the boil and simmer for another 2 hours.
    - Remove bones carefully and let the soup cool.
    - Blend the soup and season well.

    Plus, if you like it a bit thicker, just use less water, it's easier to add water than it is to thicken it.

    if you want to get rid of the fat off the top add ice cubes the fat clings to them and remove them.
