Re: How do you store your homemade chicken stock?

Since we use ours up quickly I just keep it in a pitcher in the back of my fridge. It is partially frozen in the back. I think the back temp is 30-32 degrees. It keeps for 3-4 weeks. By then I need to make more.

Next year I hope to get a pressure canner. Then I plan on canning both meat and broth. Until then making it monthly and keeping in the fridge must do for us.

Sorry to be so blunt but I really felt I had to say something. Don't want anyone getting sick or even worse, dying from mishandling meats.
Oh jeez. I totally forgot to finish my sentence!!! I hot bath them then store them in my fridge!! They keep a bit longer that way it doesn't take as much time as pressure canning. I would never store long term without pressure canning.

Sorry to freak you out!!!

Freeze them in old yogurt containers (both 8 oz, and larger quarts) on a tray, later that day take them out and put them in a ziploc bag so I can have the containers for next time.

Re: How do you store your homemade chicken stock?

I store in the fridge in a mason jar for up to a month or can larger batches. I had someone on my blog suggest freezing in ice cube trays for easier portioning. I may try that next time!

I used to freeze mine, but hate unthawing it and never remembered to thaw it out for suppers. Not a big deal if making soup, but I like to use it for rice and such. So I canned it this year. MUCH easier!

I freeze mine in quart jars. I wish I could can it, but I'm afraid to do it on our land lady's glass top. It's a pain to have to remember to thaw it.
