My teen daughter and I tried making homemade soup and although it’s still a work in progress, it came out pretty good!

First we started by making stock. We buy organic whole chickens when they’re on sale and since they’re small, we wait until we have three of them. We’ll roast the chicken in the oven, pull the meat off, my husband breaks up the carcass and bones, we put it in a freezer bag and throw it in the freezer until we have three of them.

When we have three, we put the carcass and bones in a stock pot and cover it with cold water. We add carrots, celery, onions, parsley, salt and pepper. Bring it to a boil, reduce the heat and let it simmer, uncovered, for 4 – 4 1/2 hours.

My husband does a great job of cleaning the chicken and removing the fat before he cooks it that we don’t get much fat to the top, but if you do, skim it every so often. You can also wait until it’s been refrigerated and do it then.

When it’s done, remove the bones and strain it. Separate it into containers and let it cool. We freeze a few containers for future use.

We put the stock we’re using into a pot and add diced carrots and cup up red potatoes or cooked pasta (sometimes both!) Towards the end we add celery and the cooked shredded chicken.

It’s so much more healthier than the store bought stock and even more so since we use organic ingredients. Trust me when I say, I am no cook! If I can do this, anybody can!

    I’ll frequently get the last chicken off the carcass using this method although it is somewhat messy. Usually gives enough meat to make a Chicken stew though plus enough stock over to make a soup.
    I’ll often make something along the lines of this Chicken Noodle Soup but the stock can be used for anything that needs chicken stock.
