Thermomix Liquid Chicken Stock / Chicken Bone Broth

Thermomix Singapore Liquid Chicken Stock


Chicken stock has a permanent place in my freezer - because of its versatility and how convenient it is to make. Chop up 1 carrot, 1 onion, 1 stalk of celery, then throw in 2 chicken carcasses (washed) and a couple of herbs (not necessary), boil for 1 hour, and we have a rich, fragrant nutritious broth which the 3 kids are happy to drink on its own. $4 for 1 litre of goodness, and I can freeze in portions to cook dishes like noodle soup, crispy noodles, Japanese-style pasta, porridge and other types of soup.

 

mummy likes to blanch the chicken first, while others like to soak the chicken bones for 30 min before cooking - so you get a clearer, cleaner broth. 


This is not rocket science, and it does seem very easy. but when I grappling to learn cooking while taking care of children, it was tough to learn. this is the impetus to share cooking basics even though I'm very much a noob cook - in hopes that it can benefit someone someday.
