Homemade Chicken Stock

Yield:
3 quarts
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 4 pounds chicken necks or backs, skin and fat removed
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 carrot, roughly chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, roughly chopped
  • Herb bouquet of parsley, bay leaf and thyme, tied in cheesecloth
  • 4 quarts water
Directions

Put vegetables and bouquet garni on bottom of a 10 quart stock-pot and chicken parts on top. Add water, just enough to cover chicken and slowly bring to a simmer. Turn heat down to keep broth at a slow simmer and cook for 3 hours, skimming off froth and fat that surfaces in the first 30 minutes. Also be sure to replace evaporated water.

Strain stock into a clean saucepot. Cool uncovered and refrigerate. The next day, spoon off any discarded congealed fat from surface.
