Homemade chicken stock

Recipe from Thabisa Dingiswayo

Makes about 1 litre

This tasty stock can be used to avour soups, stews or any other dish that requires stock. Shop-bought stocks are often very salty, so rather make your own. It’s also a great way to use the chicken carcasses
that you would normally throw away.

1 large carrot, quartered
1 large onion, quartered
1 celery stalk with leaves, quartered
6 cups (1,5 litres) water
2 sprigs parsley
2 bay leaves
3 whole cloves
5 black peppercorns

1. Place all the ingredients in a large pot.
2. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer with out a lid for 45 minutes to develop the avours.
3. Pour the stock through a sieve or spoon out veggies, herbs, spices and bones.
4. Use stock according to the recipe or cool completely and refrigerate for 2-3 days. Alternatively,  freeze and use instead of bought stock.
