Ingredients:

  • 4 pounds chicken backs, necks, and giblets
  • 1 onion
  • I carrot
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1/2 bay leaf
  • 2 sprigs parsley
  • tarragon
  • salt and a few peppercorns

Instructions:

Rinse the chicken, cut up the vegetables, and cover all of the ingredients with cold water, about 2 quarts. Simmer gently for about 2 hours, skimming occasionally. Strain the stock, cool, and remove any fat. This stock will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days, or it may be frozen.


Or, of course, you can use the leftover bones of a roast or fowl as the base of your stock. Here are some hints for soup-making from turkey, duck, or goose bones.
