Total Time16 hrs 15 mins
Course: Stock
Cuisine: American
Servings: 8 Cups

Ingredients

  • 1 Chicken Carcass (chicken stripped off of the bones)
  • Chicken giblets (optional)
  • 1 Small Onion (cut into quarters)
  • 3 Celery Stalks (cut into thirds and add the leaves if you have them)
  • 2 Large Carrots (or 3 medium cut into halves or thirds)
  • 4 Whole garlic cloves (peeled)
  • 1 Teaspoon Pepper Corns (or ground pepper)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 8 Cups water (or more if needed to cover ingredients)

Instructions

  • Place chicken carcass in a Crockpot. Add all other ingredients.
  • Add enough water to cover everything.
  • Put lid on Crockpot and turn Crockpot on low. Cook for 12 to 16 hours. Let cool.
  • Strain in a fine sieve to remove all the large chunks. (This is why I use peppercorns instead of ground pepper).
  • Measure in 1 or 2 cup increments and put into resealable bags and freeze. Or, I like to use these large ice cube trays that hold 1/3 cup each.
  • If using the trays, after they’re frozen I pop out the cubes and put them into a gallon size resealable bag.
