      Chicken Stock

      Ingredients:

      6 lbs chicken bones

      1 gallon cold water

      1 lb each celery, carrots and onion, chopped

      3 cloves garlic

      3 bay leaves

      1 Tbsp cracked black peppercorns

      Directions:

      Place bones, vegetables and seasonings in a large stock pot. Add cold water and heat slowly. Simmer 4-6 hours. Skim any "foam/scum" that forms on the surface and discard. Strain and place in quart mason jars or plastic storage containers. Chill and store for future use.note: keeping the oil on the surface of the stock will help preserve its freshness like the wax on top of a jelly jar.
