Homemade Chicken and Vegetable Broth

Homemade Chicken and Vegetable Broth Today I made some chicken and vegetable broth.
I started making my own chicken and veggie broth a long time ago; it saves money and I have control of the salt and other seasonings that go into our broth. I have not made beef broth as of this time.

My bowl of fresh chicken broth

I cooked 9 chicken thighs/leg quarters today in my stock pot; because of their size I could only cook 3 at a time, each time I added a little seasoning to the chicken and a little water to the pot.
At the end of the day I ended up with 7 1/4 cups of broth, 5 1/4 cups will be used this week! I used a little under half of the chicken for dinner tonight, and froze the rest of it after I shredded it.

7 1/4 cups of chicken broth; 3 bags of 2 cups each, 1 bag with 1 1/4 cups.

Last week I made veggie broth.
I keep a large freezer baggie in the freezer with veggie scraps in it. Actually I have two. When one gets full, I take about half the scraps out, cover them in water in my stock pot, and boil until I notice it needs more water, add more water, boil and turn it off to let it cool.

I got 10 cups of veggie broth last week!
I particularly love using the vegetable broth in homemade soups and crock-pot comfort meals!


  1. Making chicken, beef and vegetable broth is something I have always done. I also like to can some to always have on hand.

    1. Oh wow, I had not thought about canning the broth, is there a special way to can it, how long is good after it's canned?
      Thanks for visiting Is It Monday, Yet?

  2. I've never made a strict vegetable broth before, though I have made chicken and beef broths. They are so good for you!

    1. I haven't made the beef broth, my husband has massive heart problems so we don't eat a lot of beef, but I love making chicken and veggie broth! Thanks so much for visiting Is It Monday, yet?!

  3. A lovely looking broth I too have gained much weight but can't get going to lose it. I never weighed this much ever with love Janice

    1. Thank you Janice, maybe we can inspire each other to shed a few pounds!?
