My wife made a nice big pot of chicken soup for dinner, there is nothing quite like a bowl of homemade soup after a cold damp day at work. The soup gave us a few meals and we still had a ton of broth left. I decided to save it for stock in the freezer. We use a lot of stocks when we cook these days and it is getting a bit pricey. The good stock at our local supermarket runs $3.49 for a quart. For a fraction of that cost I put up 3 quarts of good homemade chicken stock. We know exactly what went into it and it costs less, to boot! That is a win-win in my mind.
I got a good deal on some of the Ball Plastic Freezer Jars. They were loose but came with the lids so I pounced on them.
I cut a bit of cheese cloth to strain my soup into stock through (I just couldn’t resist sneaking in a shot of my favorite pocket knife, my Spyderco Manix 2 )
I strained the soup through a colander lined with 2 layers of cheese cloth. I wanted to get all the little bits that made the soup so good out. Besides they had already done there job and made a tasty stock.
