Homemade Chicken Stock
I hope everyone is having a blessed week! I know it has been a while since my last post. What can I say Life Happens! I have something real cool for y'all today. It is easy homemade chicken stock. It is sooooo simple so here goes. Whenever you have chicken (roast chicken, fried chicken, etc.) SAVE the bones! Just put them in a ziplock till you need them. Also save your leftover vegetables. Like the stuff you would usually throw away. Like the outsides of the onions or the ends off celery. Put these in a ziplock. You could even put them in the same ziplock as your bones if you have room. When you are ready to make your stock, get out your crockpot. That's right your crockpot. Let this sit for about 30 minutes. Then you are going to fill the crockpot with water. Next, you going to turn on the crockpot on low and let it cook for 24 hours. I usually just let it run over night till the next evening. After, the 24 hours turn the crockpot off. Then strain the liquid into a bowl. Voila! You now have homemade chicken stock!!! You can store it in the refrigerator, freeze it, or can it. I will show you tomorrow how to can it! Till then I hope you have a blessed day!
