  • 1 small onion, peeled, trimmed, and quartered
  • 1 small celery stalk, trimmed, and cut into 1-inch slices

  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon whole white peppercorns

Directions

In a stockpot, place the chicken bones, then add all of the remaining ingredients, except the water. Add water to cover by 2 inches, bring to a boil and reduce the heat. Simmer uncovered for 2 to 3 hours, skimming as necessary.

Strain through a fine-mesh strainer into a clean bowl and cool. Refrigerate, covered, for up to 3 days, discarding the hardened layer of fat before using or freezing.
