Homemade chicken stock provides a flavorful base for a range of soups, stews, sauces and braises. Enterprising home cooks can have fresh stock on hand simply by making the stock ahead and freezing it in small freezer bags to use as needed.
2 white onions
4 whole cloves
bouquet garni
6 pounds chicken carcasses
2 large carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped
3 celery stalks, coarsely chopped
10 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
Chicken Stock Recipe at
Coarsely chop 1 of the onions. Stud the other whole onion with the 4 cloves.

In a stockpot, combine all the ingredients and add water just to cover (about 3 3/4 qt). Bring to a boil and, using a large spoon or wire skimmer, skim off any foam that forms on the surface. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 1-1 1/2 hours, reducing the liquid only slightly. Continue to skim off any foam that floats to the top during simmering.

Strain the stock through a fine-mesh sieve lined with cheesecloth (muslin) into a clean container. Discard the contents of the sieve. Use immediately, or let cool, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 1 month. Lift off any solidified fat from the surface of the chilled stock before using.
