    Az B's Note:

    If you want to use the stock right away, skim the fat off the top first. If planning to use it later, refridgerate until the fat congeals on the surface, then lift it off. To make vegetable stock, substitute 2 whole tomatoes for the hen. From Canadian Living November 2008

      I made the veggie version with roma tomatoes and it was awesome! I added some extra fresh lemon thyme. Also added some all purpose seasoning and some salt. I cooked mine on low on the stove for about 5 hours. AWESOME. Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap May 2009.

      Excellent! As I have often been known to say "you can't go wrong with a Canadian Living recipe" and this one is good! Other then using chicken pieces I made as posted using the stove top. Going to give the large slow cooker a go next time around. Had plenty of fresh parsley so used all ten springs. The seasoning was just right for us. I like making my own chicken stock and this one has been added to my collection. Thank you.
