Chicken Stock for soup
MyCookbook Recipe Database
MyCookbook Member: MyCookbook
Recipe Category: Appetizer
Recipe Preparation Level: easy
Appetizer-easy to prepare
Makes about 8 cups
4 pounds chicken necks and backs
1 tablespoon canola oil
3 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
2 cups chopped onion
2 cups chopped celery
1 & 1 /2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 bay leaf
Rinse chicken bones and pieces. Pat them dry and set aside.
Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add vegetables and cook, stirring frequently for about 5 minutes, or until just softened. Stir in chicken parts, thyme, peppercorns, and bay leaf. When well combined, add one gallon of water. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for about 3 hours, occasionally skimming off scum, or until liquid is reduced to 8 cups.
Strain through a fine sieve, pushing on solids to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard solids. Allow stock to cool slightly, spooning off fat as it rises to the surface. Cover and refrigerate for up to two or three days, or freeze in small quantities, for ease of use, for up to 3 months. Before using spoon or scrape off any fat that has solidified on top.
