Had to do a double take there for Kangaroo tail - not easily available in the UK

I think you can count that as lucky, Hayley! I'm not sure how easy it would even be for a city-dwelling Aussie to find one, actually. I'm not very keen on kanga as a meat - a bit gamey for me. But as a broth it is presumably unidentifiable. ;-)
