|Finished stock - simmered for|
8 hours. The whole house
Use your homemade stock in your favorite soups, rice or other grains, beans & lentils, or to cook vegetables in. It really is amazing how much you can boost the flavor of brown rice by simply cooking in fresh stock. No salt needed :-)
|Using an ice bath, helps to remove|
the skum from the mesh strainer.
Homemade Chicken Stock
2-3 lb pasture-raised chicken parts (bones, neck, & skin)***
1 tbl. raw apple cider vinegar
3 celery stalks, chopped in large 2-3 inch pieces
3 carrots, chopped in large 2-3 inch pieces
2 large onions, quartered into large pieces
1 whole bulb garlic, sliced in half with skin intact
cold filtered water
parsley & any other fresh herbs that you have on hand
|Skum (impurities) rising to the top |
of the chicken stock.
2. Turn to high heat and bring to a boil. While stock is heating prepare an ice bath in a small bowl and retrieve a small hand held mesh strainer. When skum (impurities) rises to the top skim it off with the mesh strainer. Dip the strainer into the ice bath each time.
3. Turn heat to warm-low, add parsley, and simmer for 6-10 hours adding more water as necessary so bones and vegetables stay covered.
4. Remove from heat and place covered into the refrigerator. Let cool completely.
|Adding fresh herbs helps to pull the|
minerals out of the bones!
***Alternatively, you could use a 2-3lb whole chicken. Prepare the same way. Once you strain the liquid. Pull the chicken from the bones and reserve the meat for soups, salads, dinners, sandwiches, etc.
