My little L has a bit of a cold, and everyone knows chicken soup is just the thing for that. Yesterday I made some from scratch. Making stock is so easy. I'm not sure how long ago but I was watching Nigella Lawson and she said that a really easy way to make chicken stock is to freeze the carcass of a store bought rotisserie chicken after you are done with it. I've done this several times now, it's like getting a free meal out of something I buy anyway! I just thaw the chicken in the fridge and put it in a pot of boiling water with some bay leaves & other spices plus whatever produce I have in the fridge that is still good but doesn't look as appetizing as it could. Let simmer for a few hours and there you'll have some of the best stock you've ever eaten! Freeze whatever you don't need for that night's soup. Here's a picture of yesterday's stock cooking. Happy eating!
