  Veal bones 1⁄2 Pound (Especially Marrow Bones)
  All purpose flour 1 Tablespoon

Preheat oven to 450°F.
Place all bones and giblets in roasting pan and let brown at least 1 hour, turning occasionally until an even dark brown.
Sprinkle with flour, add onion and carrot and brown another 15 minutes.
Transfer to deep pot and cover with stock.
Add garlic and remaining seasonings and simmer gently at least 4 hours, skimming foam as it accumulates (particularly at beginning of cooking).
When stock is rich and brown, pour through very fine strainer into bowl.
Cover and chill overnight.
Remove all fat from surface.
Turn stock into heavy saucepan and cook very slowly over direct heat until it becomes a gelatinous demi-glace, about 1 hour.
Use as desired.
