  1. Boil soup vegetables (if used) in 3-4 parts of water for 20 minutes. Drain vegetables and add the liquid to meats.
  2. Cook all meats in a little water (below boiling point) until soft. Separate meat from bones when still warm. In home production meat is usually not ground. Save meat stock for aspic. Mix all ingredients together.
  3. Place ingredients in a suitable container, arrange vegetables and carefully pour the hot meat stock which will become aspic (jelly) when it solidifies. Let it cool at room temperature and then refrigerate.
Sulz is served cold, with vinegar or lemon juice.
If stuffed into casings, sulz becomes sulz-head cheese sausage.
About 10% of natural aspic (meat stock) is added. In home production meat is usually not cured. Commercial processors almost always cure meat. Commercial processor also used commercial gelatin and not natural aspic.
