Chicken Stock 2 Preparation

1. Place all the ingredients in an 8-quart stock pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat. As the stock approaches a boil, remove any impurities that rise to the top by skimming with a ladle 2. Reduce the heat and simmer the stock for 3 to 4 hours, continuing to skim impurities from time to time while the stock cooks. Taste after 3 hours for the strength of stock you want. Remove from the heat and let the stock sit for 10 to 15 minutes, then ladle through a fine strainer 3. Once strained, remove the fat from the stock by skimming with a ladle (see note). Cool by placing the container of strained stock in and ice water bath, then refrigerate. The stock will keep for about 1 week in the refrigerator, or freeze in 1-cup batches. Note: Another way to defat the stock is to place the cooled stock in the refrigerator overnight. The fat will set on the top and can be easily spooned off. Variation: Use a 5- to 6-pound roasting chicken instead of bones; use the cooked meatfor chicken salad or croquettes Recipe by: Martha Stewart Posted to recipelu-digest Volume 01 Number 302 by James and Susan Kirkland <> on Nov 24, 1997
