Ingredients

About 2 lbs. chicken bones (from 1 large chicken) or chicken wings
1 large onion, roughly chopped
3 medium carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
3 celery stalks, roughly chopped

Preparation

1. Put all ingredients in a large pot and add 4 qts. water. Bring to a boil and spoon off any foam that forms on top. Reduce heat and simmer until broth is reduced by half, 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

2. Pour mixture through a strainer into a bowl and let broth cool; discard what is in the strainer.

3. Use broth, or ladle it into quart-size freezer bags or containers (great for soup) and/or ice cube trays (handy for sauces), and freeze for up to 6 months; transfer the cubes to bags once they're solid.
