Instructions

    METHOD :

    Combine all the ingredients in a large Stock Pot.
    Cover it with cold water and bring it to boil.
    Once it starts to boil, reduce the flame.
    Using a slotted spoon skim off and discard any scum and fat from the surface.
    Simmer for 2-3 hours, skimming occasionally.
    Remove from the heat and strain through a fine-mesh sieve.
    Discard the Bones and Vegetables.
    Allow the stock to cool.
    Cool and store them in air tight containers.


    NOTES :

    This stock can be used immediately.
    Can keep in the refrigerator for 4 Days.
    Can Freeze for up to 2-3 Months.
    Divide the stock into smaller portions and Freeze them.
    Remove the solidified fat from the surface of the stock before using it.
    Boil the Stock for 2-3 minutes before using it.
    Can make this stock from left over chicken roast carcasses.
    But I feel raw carcasses yields cleaner and better tasting stocks.
