  • Obscene Amounts of Chicken Stock

    Since I'm cooking a lot of chicken thighs and legs with onion and garlic in the crock pot, I'm acquiring obscene amounts of chicken stock.

    What do I do with it? I skimmed the fat off the top and have it separate in the fridge.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    Baggie it up and freeze it.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

      It is, but then what do I do with it? The only thing I've generally used stock for is soup.

          Freeze it and use it anywhere you might use water in a savory dish.

          Freeze some of it in icecube trays for when you need just a little bit...like steaming veggies.

          If you have freezer space, I tend to freeze the carcasses, bones and pan drippings until I have several and then make a huge batch all at once. I also keep a baggie in the freezer for veggies a bit past their prime that I toss in to flavor the stock.

          If you have a pressure canner you can can broth which can save on your freezer space.

            You can use it to cook veggies in, add it as liquid with a roast, use it in mashed veg, make yummy sauces, and do all kinds of lovely things beyond just soups.

              Poach eggs in it, makes curries with it, use in place of water in savory recipes...

                send it to me.

                Even if you fall flat on your face, at least you're moving forward!

                  Not quite sure about the shipping on that.

                  It is, however, the lovely kind that effectively turns into Jello in the fridge.

                      Right, I've just never really cooked with it.

                      By the way, how do y'all strain it so that when it settles out, it doesn't have particle gook on the bottom?

                        I dont worry about small particle gook. I dump my broth/bones through a fairly large seive to get out the big stuff and leave the little stuff ( I also dont skim my fat - I freeze with the fat and then when I open the freezer container I have solid fat that I can either keep or discard) . If you really really need clear broth you could always run through a few layers of cheesecloth.

                          I don't need clear broth. I was planning to try cooking with the chicken fat.

                            I drink the stuff neat. Some days, it just feels like what my body needs and it tastes so darned good.

                              It also thickens sauces really well.
