Chicken Broth--Homemade Style

If you haven't made your own chicken broth you are totally missing out!  Not only is it crazy nutritious but it tastes awesome and you know exactly what goes in it.

First thing you want to do is to grab some celery, onion, carrots, chicken bones, and a bay leaf.  I always save my vegetable scraps and chicken bones and fat and toss them in the freezer for this reason.  

Toss everything in your crockpot and fill it with water.  I usually end up putting about 10 cups of water in there.  Sprinkle a little bit of salt and pepper and let it cook on low for about 8 hours.  The longer you let it cook the richer and better it will be.

After your 8 hours (or however long you've cooked this) is up, strain your broth with a fine strainer.  This is what you'll have left over.  You can just toss this because there's really no use for it anymore.

Take your strained broth and put in the Ball freezer containers ( or however you want to freeze it. I can mine, but you can process them however you'd like!
