I just wanted to share my simple way of getting the most out of a whole chicken. Once we had eaten most of the roasted whole chicken, I froze what was left of the carcass. For a couple of weeks, I bagged and froze the ends of all of our celery, carrots, onions and garlic.
I added all of the veggie scraps along with the chicken carcass to my crock pot. I added enough water to cover it, then cooked it on low for 12 hours. Then I strained it and put it in leftover glass jars. Now we have fresh chicken stock/bone broth for whenever we need it. It made a little over 3 quarts. I used what didn't fit in the jars to make some rice, then froze the rest to pull out and use as needed.
So easy, and a good way to make stock basically for free! Have you ever tried making other types of stock? I'd love to hear about it. Wishing you a blessed day, Joanna.
