I try to make Chicken Stock as much as possible so when I cook chicken that will lend its self to making stock I do so and freeze so I don't have to buy it. This does take a few extra minutes but it saves me money and more importantly I know what my family is eating.
- Prep Time : 15 minutes
- Cook Time : 1h 30 min
- So the other day when I made Whole Chicken In the Slow Cooker I wanted to also make stock. So I left the juice that was already in the slow cooker from cooking the chicken. Then I added a blub of garlic a couple carrots, an onion cut in half. and some celery. Then I added the skin and bones from the chicken (and wings since no one eats them at my house) back in as well. Then I filled it up with water and cooked on high for about 1 1/2 hours.
- Once everything looks like this it is time to drain and freeze.
- I strain over a large bowl then I put it in the fridge to cool down. Once it is cool I put 4 cups at a time in gallon freezer bags (that is the same amount as the boxes you buy at the store) Then I freeze them laying flat in the freezer. Then once frozen I can stand them up to take up less space in the freezer.
