Chicken Broth – experiment #1

This isn’t a recipe as much as a recording of what I did, so that I may do it better in the future. Basic recipe taken from : http://chefmichaelsmith.com/Recipe/homemade-chicken-broth/

Notes for the next time I make this:

  • Don’t use red onions – it makes the broth a lot darker.
  • use a bit less water
  • Salt earlier.

Ingredients :
2 medium onions (unpeeled), cut into eights
2 carrots, cut into chunks
2 stalks celery, cut into chunks
2 bay leaves
1 chicken carcass
a sprig or two fresh thyme
a tea spoon of peppercorns
some sea salt.

***

1. Put everything into the pot except the pepper corns.

2. Cover in water

3. Bring to a boil. A lot of scum will raise to the surface. Drop the heat to a simmer and skim the scum.

4. Simmer until it looks done. Add the peppercorns once the broth starts taking some color.

5. Strain and put into jars.
