      This was great. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I used a chicken carcass from a roasted chicken and the stock turned out beautifully. I made it in to some to-die-for chicken stew and this stock made all the difference.

      This was great. I added 2 cloves of garlic and put everything in my crockpot and cooked it on high for about 10 hrs. Skimmed the fat off this morning after refrigerating overnight. I think that is a great method to get almost all the fat off. Will use it today for Chicken Gumbo. Thanks for a great recipe.

      I happened to be making stock and looked on Zaar on a lark, and here's pretty much the same recipe I'm using! I'm using only necksand dried celery leaves as no celery. Otherwise, it's pretty much the same. Leaving mom and dad with quite a few frozen containers of stock to be used for soups, as canned broth not available here. Do remember to skim the surface, as that keeps the stock from being cloudy.
