Ok, this is NOT that kind of post!!
My children read this blog!!
With the weather cooling down, it's amazing how much more interest I have in cooking.
It's fun to peruse new recipes and make a pot of something new.
Yesterday I decided to make home made chicken broth.
Don't gasp....it's EASY!
With homemade chicken broth, all you do is plop the chicken in a stock pot,
And some carrots, onions and celery.
I just rough chop them, they are just for flavor.
Fill the pot nearly full with water.
I also add a tablespoon of vinegar.
No, it doesn't affect the taste, it helps pull the minerals out of the bones in the chicken.
And just simmer away.
Strain it and toss the veggies. They are wilted and the nutrition has been totally sucked out of them.
If there's any chicken left, you can save that too.
It's really delicious when cooked for 10-12 or more hours, rich and strong.
I then cool it and put it into mason jars and freeze it for later.
This is a great way to use up a chicken carcass that you have already eaten.
Getting two meals for the price of one!
And your kitchen smells wonderful in the process.
I know this may not be news to some....
But I've discovered something that makes the broth even better.
And that's a Costco roasted chicken.
I'll buy a chicken, eat up the yummy meat for dinner.
And then make chicken broth out of the carcass.
It would put anyone in the mood.......
