How do you make....

Post by 7dawn on Fri Jul 29, 2011 8:33 pm

How do you make homemade stock? I want to try it, but am unsure how to do it. I know you boil a chicken, maybe put some celery, carrots and such in the water. Once it is made how long does it keep and how long can it be frozen for?

I take my meat, bones, or sea food shells and cover them with water. I add what ever vegetables I want. Carrots, celery, onion or what ever else I have on hand except peppers as they taste to strong when cooked for a while. I some times add tomato to it but it depends on what I am using it for. I cook it until the vegetables fall apart. I strain it and then let it cool in the fridge over night. That way I can take the fat off the top before I freeze it. I freeze some of it in ice cube trays and others in cup size portions. I have kept it up to a year with out it going bad. When I freeze it I put it in quart bags, squeeze all the air out of it, and lay it flat on a sheet pan. That way it takes up less space in the freezer.

The sea food shells I use are crab shells, and shrimp shells
The Chicken I use bones, skin and dark meat. They make better broth.
Pork I take the fat off the the pokr and use pork and bones
For beef I use hamburger meat or pot roast pieces.

Vegetarian is carrots, onion, garlic, celery (leaves too) green beans, corn anything but beans.

Thanks Amy! I am going to be making some chicken gumbo soon and thought I would try my hand at making my own broth. Would soup bones (like beef) make good beef stock?

yes any bones will make good stock. I save my ckicken carcass for chicken stock too. When I buy one of those rotossery chickens I use the bones, and the broth in the bottom of the container as my stock base.

Ohhh! Good idea! I buy those to make quick batches of chicken and dumplings. Very Happy I usually get them once or twice a month because they are so cheap and so yummy!!!!

I finally got around to making the chicken stock. I made such a huge batch! I used the pot we have for frying a turkey or boiling crawfish. I hope it lasts a while because I do not want to do that again anytime soon! I could barely lift the pot!

Hopefully I will get to use some soon when I decide to cook again. I was thinking of doing fried chicken tenders, making a po-boy and making gravy and homemade french bread for them. I did that once and drizzled some chicken and dumpling gravy over the po-boy...OMGOSH was it good!
