Hints & Tips
Home-made Chicken Stock
Leftover bones and skin from a cooked or raw chicken carcass
SPAR Freshline Celery
SPAR Freshline Onions
SPAR Freshline Carrot
Put the leftover bones and skin from a chicken carcass into a large stock pot and cover with cold water. Add veggies such as celery, onion, carrots or parsley. Add about a teaspoon of salt, 1/4 tsp of pepper.
Bring to the boil and immediately reduce heat to bring the stock to barely a simmer. Simmer uncovered for at least 4 hours, occasionally skimming off the foam that comes to the surface.
