chicken stock homemade

I used my large electric roaster and put in 3 whole chicken fryers.  To this I added some large cut:

  • carrots
  • onions
  • celery
  • garlic
  • salt, pepper, and thyme

I filled the roaster about halfway full of water and let this cook all day on medium/low.

I put the meat in the food processor and pureed it, into little pieces and put them into a container to freeze.  I ended up with 8 -1lb containers.IMG_20140716_211354

The broth, I strained and put into quart canning jars.  I put them into the refrigerator to cool and then put them into the freezer for a later date.  It was very rich broth, but I ended up with 4 quarts of it.  I think that when I make a soup, I will add 1 jar per meal.  That will give me 4 soup bases this month made with good, healthy bone broth.
