Thyme Chicken Stock
THYME CHICKEN STOCK
My thyme plant is in need of a haircut, so I値l make a stock today using the cuttings.
First, I値l boil the cuttings and pour off a cup of the tea. It has a nice taste and is good for you.
I値l add a frozen chicken thigh, carrots, a couple of frozen celery stalks, a chopped onion and the last little garlic cloves, smashed whole, seasoned with chicken or beef granulated bullion.
I値l take the chicken out as soon as it痴 done, cool and strip the meat off, bag and freeze it for another day.
Put the bones back in and simmer until done adding liquid if necessary.
Drain, saving the stock and throw away bones, etc.
Use this stock to make soup, boil potatoes, or pasta, or country style ribs. Then strain and return the stock to the freezer, enriched with the flavors of whatever you boiled in it.
The meats, vegetables you致e cooked in it are filled with the wonderful flavors of the stock.
If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
