My useless opinion here is that making stock from leftover bones is the ABSOLUTE opposite of waste!!!
You paid 5 bucks for a 5 lb chicken. I feed 5 people (ok 3 are small) 2x on just the meat. If I make stock I dont buy it at $1 a can. I save up 2-3 chickens worth of bones, voila!! 2 months worth (if I dont make soup) of chicken stock.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

Well, when you can't buy canned beef or chicken stock and you've been firmly instructed to watch you sodium intake you learn quickly to make your own and regulate the amount of salt in it and not rely on tasteless sodium laden boullion cubes (which IMHO are only good in a push to shove pinch). Mike in FW has a wonderful recipe for beef stock (roast the bones first---wonderful!! post is on here somewhere) and for chicken stock freeze all your chicken parts and bones and then make it....so cheap and delicious .....yum!)

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
