      Skim off and discard the foam.

      Oh my goodness, Mean Chef! This was only my second time making chicken stock, and my first with this recipe. In my household, both two- and four-legged creatures have been salivating for two days. LOL I'll be using this stock this week in several dishes. I'm really looking forward to it. A couple things...I misread the recipe and looked all over for szechwan peppercorns. Not allowed to be imported to the U.S., though I'm sure you knew that. Finally found szechwan pepper. Also, since this is a two-day thing, it makes sense to me to start on a Monday since my garbage pick-up is on Wednesday. : ) The critters outside are delirious over the scraps I think!!! Thank you for posting this.

      Hands down, the best chicken stock recipe I have ever used and the best I have ever tasted! It has become a staple in my kitchen. We make it in bulk 3 times a year, to get us through cold nights of soups, casseroles and risottos! It is so flavoursome serve it with some garlic and herbs for an instant consomme, and for more complex recipes in which a 'chickeny' flavour is not really necessary, I can cut it with water or vegetable stock. A million thanks for posting this!
