I had never made chicken broth before, but this is amazing! I LOVE having chicken broth in my freezer. I separated them into 1 cup portions & froze them flat on a cookie sheet before staking them in the freezer. I have found that 1 cup portions are best as most things require 1 or less cups of broth Be prepared, this takes about 2 days to make Serves: 6 cups
- 1 Chicken Carcass – stripped of meat
- 1 Onion – chopped
- 1 cup Celery – chopped
- 2 cups Carrots – chopped
- 1 head Garlic – peeled
- 3 Bay Leaves
- 1 tbsp Italian Seasoning
- 6 cups Water
Place chicken carcass into slow cooker stoneware & nestle the vegetables in with the bones Add garlic, bay leaves, Italian seasoning & water Cover & cook on low for 8-10 hours (I cook it all day & then let it cool overnight) Remove stoneware & cool completely Using a sieve, strain all the broth from the vegetables, bones & herbs & portion out into Ziploc bags Freeze flat & then stack in freezer NOTE: My camera just died, so no picture today 😦 I am so sad, but it is cyber Monday, so maybe I can find a really good deal!
