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!

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut the roots off the end of the celery bulb and cut the celery into chunks.
  2. Cut the carrots into chunks along with a onion.
  3. 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.

  7. 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.
  8. 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
