Chicken stock

Have you ever made your own homemade chicken stock? It is really simple, just ask Jamie Oliver. He has a great recipe and you can find it here.

I made it this afternoon and have to give it 2 thumbs up!

Make sure you use a large pot!  I used the large pot that I usually use when making soup and it was not large enough. I still needed to add another 2 L water.  So I transferred it to the big pot that I have for prepping canning jars.

I added a few more carrots and peppercorns than Oliver's recipe said to and I didn't spoil the brew. After four hours at a gentle simmer that house smelled wonderful and I was happy with how it cooked down.

After straining it...

Making the labels...

And ready for the freezer.
