Homemade chicken broth is a delicious way to use the bones from a roasting chicken. It greatly enhances the flavor of other recipes, contains far less salt than commercial chicken broth, and is a fraction of the cost. It can be easily frozen for future use as well.

  • bones from a roasting chicken 
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk of celery, chopped

  1. In a medium-size soup pot, place the chicken bones, onion, celery, carrot, herbs, and salt and about 7 cups of water, or enough to cover the bones.
  2. Bring to a boil on high heat, then cover and lower to a simmer. Cook 30-50 minutes--even with the shorter cooking time, you will get a nice, aromatic broth. 
  3. Strain the chicken broth into a large bowl and discard the bones. The final quantity will be about 6 cups of broth.

Broth can be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 3 days, or frozen for up to 2 months.
