- Place the bones in a large saucepan or stockpot and add the water, or enough to cover the bones. Bring to the boil, skimming off the scum as it rises to the surface.
- Tie together the thyme, parsley and bay leaf and add to the pan with the onions, celery, carrots and peppercorns. Cover and simmer gently for 2–3 hours.
- Strain the stock through a sieve into a bowl, discarding the bones and vegetables. Leave to cool, then chill. Skim any fat from the surface and discard before using the stock.
