I'm not done yet. Next, I put the carcass in my pressure cooker to make bone broth (you can also use a crockpot or stovetop).
This gives me 10-12 pints of concentrated, gelatinous, delicious chicken broth. I dilute as I use so end up with almost double that. Have you ever bought good, organic bone broth? At our local Farmers Market, 1 pint sells for $12, and that is not concentrated or gelatinous! So the broth I get from these chickens would cost $240 if I bought it by the pint.
I always keep plenty of chicken and beef bone broth on hand. I use it for cooking, quick egg drop soup, or it is great to simply drink. And it is so, so good for you. I certainly am getting my money’s worth from those 2 chickens, and at the same time am providing healthy, nutritious meals for my family. Questions, comments, and shares are welcomed.
