Basic Chicken Stock

I like to include the bones as it makes for a better flavor.


Skin & Bones of A Whole Chicken Including Neck & Spine

1 Carrot

2 Celery Stalks

1 Large Onion

1 Tablespoon Salt

In a big pot, collect the bones. Cover the bones so that there are four inches of water above the bones. Set over a high heat to bring to a boil while you chop the onion, carrot and celery into large diced pieces. Add all of the ingredients, including the skin, neck and spine, to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer for 6 hours. Strain and reserve the broth. Store in the refrigerator for up to three days or freeze. Makes 4 cups
