How do you make YOUR chicken stock?

If I ever have to buy store bought chicken broth ever again, I might actually cry real tears over it. This is my favorite thing to make now. It is super easy, I can use up veggies and spices around the house, it tastes better than canned, doesn't have the sodium, and it's FREE! Doesn't get any better than that.

Today's stock has my chicken frame, the juices from baking last night, 1 chopped onion, couple of stalks of celery, some baby carrots, about 6 cloves of garlic, 3 bay leaves, and some pepper. I like to use fresh parsley when I have it, or rosemary. I've also been able to use up leftover white wine.

Let it simmer 2-3 hours for some rich, delicious broth. Freeze it in ice cube trays, dump them into a zip loc baggie, and you're done!

I can never freeze it...my kids LOVE homemade chicken stock and we end up eating all of it within a day or two of my making it! I do, however, have some ham stock in the freezer. I realllllly need to use that up!!!

I love homemade chicken stock! I make it a diefferent way probably everytime--but we love it nonetheless.

Can't wait until I have fresh herbs, too. Hows your majiggy going? (I never can remember the name of that thing! LOL)
