Scrape carrots and peel onions; put in kettle with meat, celery, and seasonings.
Add water and bring to a boil over a gentle heat.
Cook very slowly until the meat falls from the bones.
The broth should then be strained through a dampened linen napkin into a clean pan, placed back over heat, and reduced to half its quantity.
Remove all bones from the meat and cut meat into small even dice.
When the broth has reduced sufficiently, remove from heat, stir in gelatin softened in 1/2 cup cold water, and pour over the diced meat.
Pour all into a 2-quart mold and chill until set; stir occasionally while still liquid to prevent meat from sinking to the bottom of the mold.
Unmold on platter and garnish with watercress and radish roses.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
