It’s for those times when you have a pile of bone-in stuff like ox tails or beef ribs, and you have a bunch of herbs that are one more hard freeze away from not being fresh herbs any more.  Some red wine, tomato paste, broth, onions and carrots and celery need to go in, and maybe…

yeah, that’ll work.  I think this is going to be a beefy veggie soup or stew.
