Chicken Stock

Winter time is perfect for soup. You don't have to buy canned broth in the store, or those packets of chicken bouillon. It's easy and cheaper to make it yourself! If you've recently had a meal with roast chicken (or turkey!), you can use the bones to make chicken stock. Just put water in a pot, plop in your chicken bones, some onions, carrots, or garlic if you have them on hand, bring to a boil then simmer. I only did mine about 2 hours, but I've read that some people do it as long as 24 hours to really bring out the nutrition and flavor.

I made enough for 2 big pots of homemade soups this week.
