The Best Home Made Chichen Stock

Norma DeRemer


My grandma showed me how to make this years ago. Just a few days ago I was cleaning out my frig. and saw the bulb end of a celery stalk, some carrots and onions. I remembered not to get rid of the celery stalk end piece. (the root) So I dicided to make some chicken broth since I was running low of it in the freezer. Add two pieces of chicken with the skin on. This is so easy and tast much better than any canned I've tasted. I use it for soup stock and cook my rice in it also. I cut the cooked chicken in mushroom soup heated it and put over cooked rice for dinner. Saved and used it all!

Place all into an 8 qt. stock pot and place enough water to at least three inches from the top of the pan and add the chicken.
Place on Med-high heat and cook until a hard boil and place a lid on pan, then turn heat down to a soft boill and simmer as directed above. (about an hour and a half)
Remove from heat and strain into two large pans using cheese cloth to catch the vegetables.
Let pans cool. Measure 2 cups of broth into containers for the freezer.
When frozen hard, remove from container and place in a seal tight bag, mark it (2 cups chicken broth) and place it back into your freezer. Keeps for months.
NOTE: I have a Food Saver I use all the time and this stock can stay in your freezer for a year. I know because I forgot some in the back of the freezer and when I used it; it tasted like I just made it. Food
Saver well worth your money.
