Since it is late, and I should be snoozing shortly, this will be a story almost entirely in pictures. I began with chicken carcass in water with a dash of apple cider vinegar, and let it begin to heat up / boil while I prepared my additives...



Lots of chopping: 3 sticks celery, 2 parsnips, 1 large carrot, leftover onions. Next, I sauteed some roughly chopped garlic, mushrooms, 2 bay leaves, fresh rosemary & fresh thyme (these last from the planter boxes on the backporch):





And into the pot!



Six hours or so of boiling / simmering later...



...there was a lot less in the pot! Also it turns a beautiful gold-cream color. After straining & transferring to a different pot (half the initial pot's size), it looked like this:



Once it cooled, I transferred it into 5 freezer bags of roughly 2 cups each: 10 cups total stock produced!



The end.
