the stock you have is just fine, if you bring it to the boil each day for a few mins you don`t even have to keep it in the Fridge!
although you risk "Cooking all the love out of it".

when I was a single guy, all I had was a camping stove and single but Very large pot with lid.
I could start a soup on monday and eat some, on tuesday I would add maybe some meat and cook that and eat from it, wednesday I may add a few onions and potatoes to it, cook and eat from it....
I`ve kept a pot going for WEEKS like this, I`m still here sucking air :)

personaly, unless you have plans for the week of using this stock, I`de bring it to a boil for 5-10 mins, let it cool and freeze it in bags or containers (by the way, putting a Hot pan into a fridge is NOT a good idea! they frost up, the fridge works overtime, and you risk warming the things you wanted to keep cool).

YT2095 I do not know as much about science as you surely do, but I can not believe that this is right. This goes against every bit of food science that I know. Keeping something like this in the danger zone for more than a few hours is not safe.

You could ride in a car a million times without a seatbelt and never get hurt. That does not mean it is safe or smart. It just takes one time to show you how big of a mistake that can really be.

agreed at face value it Seems very contra intuitive, but I did this for over 5 years (and still do now occasionaly).
my ancestors did this during the war also, as long as it comes up to temp and that is maintaned for 10 mins, and the lid is kept on at all other times (no ladles sticking out of it) it`s fine :)

nothing gets in enough in quantities to breed over that space of time, I`m more wary of Fridges in all honesty, they don`t Stop bacteria, simply slow them down, Boiling on the other hand... :)

EDIT: On the Other hand, Miss a day, and it goes down the toilet!

Well, well, well...

Thank you all so very much.

Most of my fears are allayed; but for my scientific bent :-)

Well, I'll have at it, since this gelatinous soupy gaggle looks and smells so great.

I think I will get the microscope out of mothballs just for the fun of it.

All the best... It is great being here amongst you cooks!

Happy New Year!

Darrell
